This *is* the beginners list. The experts list is cygwin-developers.
I'm afraid that the call for a "beginners-list" springs from a desire to get rid
of all the "stupid questions", which is generally defined as
"everybody-else's question but mine".
If we define a still-more-beginner's list, it will be a write-only list.
