The guardian requires the server's internal window to monitor it's
state. Although, there's probably another way to achieve this, but
it's too late for FB 1.5. And, hopefully it will be addressed in FB
2.0(I think it is planned, but not certain), so that it will permit
the Windows server to be configured as optimized for services, without
suffering a performance loss.
