* Does the X11 stuff get used so much that this level of fine-grained
mount options actually makes a big difference? Why not just default the
lot, and create a single mount point for "/usr/X11R6"?
* Would it help to add an option to mount to "reset the mounts to
installation defaults"? At least for the Cygwin installation drive?
That last option would wipe out all mounts for directories under the
Cygwin installation directory, and create a clean set of mounts as the
installer would have done. It would be invaluable for cleaning up from
botched mount experiments..
