Subject: INVALID_SOCKET symbol conflict
INVALID_SOCKET symbol conflict

I notice that nearly all the defines in libssh2.h use the LIBSSH2_ prefix, except for INVALID_SOCKET. It seems to be on purpose but I don't understand why. Is it a Windows thing?
My issue is that I'm writing an application (on Linux) which includes headers from multiple libraries, and some of them also set this symbol to a conflicting value.
Any enlightenment is appreciated, TIA.
