Heh.  I was about to reply to your email on cygwin@ with "Is that list in
the FAQ, and if not, doesn't it belong there?".  Do you have a reference
for the thread with that discussion?  Even if it doesn't belong in the
FAQ, it seems to me that it would be good to have this somewhere on the
Cygwin website.

I may be wrong, but I thought this was really part of some Symantec
AntiVirus package...

Thanks for posting this list, BTW.
