Also error codes on failure, and the ability to check whether a user has
certain rights (without using grep).  If we decide to adopt it as a
package, could we have a CVS repository for it under cygwin-apps (like for

patches against CVS if need be?  Unless Chris plans to release it totally
separate from Cygwin...
