I have nothing useful to add here other than the fact that I am
really loving this dialog.  I like to see things being hashed
out like this.

Pierre, I really appreciate your delving into issues here.  And, of
course I appreciate all that Corinna has done with ntsec.  I am sure
that she regrets ever listening to me when I suggested that she do
something with Windows permissions years ago.  Not that I am trying
to insert any claim to helping with ntsec.  This is all a black box
to me.

Anyway, I think between the two of you, we'll eventually have things
working as well as humanly possible on Windows.  I'm happy to see
you working on these issues.

My 2c.
