Ok.  In that case we'll have to make do with the Berkeley code.  Just
include the license info in your patch.

I guess it depends on where you want to place the pain.  If you'd
submitted a patch and mentioned that you'd searched the SUSv2 without
finding anything, the patch probably would have gone in already.  You
have mentioned several times that you've incorporated some changes in
your local tree so the act of doing a 'cvs diff -up' should not cause
too much pain.  That just leaves writing a Changelog which you'd have to
do regardless.

You could have sent email to cygwin-patches with the patch and the
ChangeLog and your change would have been in by now, after (from
experience) two or three mail messages telling you that your ChangeLog
was incorrect.

What I'm trying to do is cut down on 27 messages saying

"Why doesn't cygwin have this functionality???"

"It seems to me that this should work!!!"

"Did I mention that it works for me???"

when all that is required is a patch and a ChangeLog.
