It may be on 'some' list, just not on the one in the link/current source.
I really wasn't meaning to be critical, perhaps I should have just said that
if it was on the TODO/wishlist it _might_ help reduce the number of requests
for it.
Probably not but at least it would be in the docs.

It does, I'm not moaning myself. I get cygwin for free because of a lot of
work by people who know more about this stuff than I do. I may ask for help
occasionally (and even more rarely be able to provide it) but I don't have
any right to expect it, so I'm grateful when it is given. The occasionally
snapping of RTFM is eminently excusable and understandable - I've done user
support in the past and I was _paid_ to have my hours made miserable.
Thanks everyone.

Bill Hughes.
