I guess in retrospect I should have taken this approach. The only
reason I hadn't in the past is because I thought Chuck's statements
represented the "party-line" of this project. Oh well, live and learn.

I'd like to voice a small objection to this practice of adding and then
removing symbols, especially given the quantity in this case and the
period of time which lapsed inbetween. I don't think this practice
should be encouraged at all because it can be quite a PITA if you have
apps which were compiled when the symbols were exported. I think this
goes double for "cosmetic" issues which are going to be fixed anyhow in
the near future. I'm trying to help Conrad test the cygserver, so I
have many apps I'm using for testing purposes. I am now going to have
to recompile the ones I just compiled the other day due to this change.
That's the reason I copy only the new built DLL to my "Cygwin test and
native build system", and *not* the libcygwin.a. This way, I link always
against the symbols available in the latest stable release and not
against symbols only available in the developers snapshot (except I
really, really want it).
