The goal of this mailing list and of the cygwin distribution is not to
support other people in their quest to bundle and massage the standard
distribution.  Maybe someone should set up another mailing list or
another web site to discuss this.  I don't think we want to open up this
topic here.  We get quite enough traffic here without adding another
"How do I setup.ini the upset?" questions to the mix.
