Support *BSD operating systems.

One of the benefits of WSL is that many server environments are Linux systems and the developer can validate many changes locally before deployment.

Similarly, various *BSD variants (Free-, Open-, etc.) are also frequently used on servers and developers could benefit immensely from having similar functionality.

This will likely be a larger item than allowing multiple Linux distributions on WSL due to the differences in system call structure.
