Re: Duplicate cygwin

Fair enough. Earnie's already made a list for this topic. Please feel free 
to redirect any inquiries on this subject to it. The address is 
p4w-posixdev at lists dot sf dot net

I don't agree that it is misguided (but that could just be me being 
misguided ;) but I do agree that, as this is against official Cygwin (Red 
Hat) policy, this has no place on this list. You won't see me talk about 
this on this list again (other than redirecting people to the now-correct 
list for this non-Cygwin topic).
