Did I say your report was unwelcome?  The above comment was just in case
you were interested in off-loading some work from the Cygwin team...  In
an ideal world, a complete fix would be nice, but your feedback is
certainly appreciated.  I'm reasonably sure someone will take your
feedback to mind and update the docs (at some point).

As for me "considering" anything, I don't have the power to make the
decisions here...  I'm sorry if I conveyed that impression. :-)
P.S. You said the instructions were "lacking exposure". ;-)
