Not exactly. In a non-recursive checkout, you'd only change the "don't
create" flag if explicitly requested to do so. In this case, it'd be
based on whether the filename is compatible with the underlying
filesystem, That's what I don't want to do.

I don't think that will ever happen. It would be equivalent to APR
generating /etc/init.d scripts for Unix. Windows service startup is a
lot more complex than daemonizing a Unix process.
