.. unless you don't have the administrative rights to make the second
user, but you're right - I should have thought of that possibility. I am
by no means a Windows guru, though - especially on the user-side..

Anyways, the way I see what he wants to do, he really does want to fork 
off a Cygwin (make it a minimalist Cygwin of some sort), so the way my 
mind is working at the moment is not how to prevent him from doing it by 
offering other solutions, but how to get it done. (I honestly think the 
decision has already been made in his mind, so the decision-making process 
is done). That doesn't mean the runas option is any less interesting 
(might be worth experimenting with) though..
