Note that it has been a not-infrequent occurrence for me to receive
personal email from people who *specifically* bypass my Reply-To and add
me to the Cc.  Invariably, they tell me that this is the way "other

So anyone who attempts this should be aware that the cygwin clueless
zone rules apply.  It won't be a complete solution.
