Ah, yes, that would be good.  I wanted to mention the FAQ in my response,
but somehow forgot.
You might want to add another method, something like:

eval "`mount -m | grep -E '"/"|"/usr/bin"|"/usr/lib"|cygdrive' | sed 's/ -t / -b /'`"

(the above might need to be tested...)

Also, some people seemed to be confused as to where in the FAQ to look for
this.  The section on CR/LF handling was mentioned, so perhaps a hyperlink
to the right section might help?
P.S.  A similar mount trick can be used to change user mounts to system
ones.  I'm not sure where in the FAQ that is adressed (if at all).
