yes, and I suggest that christopher do the same. I really don't want him
to hear my opinions if he does not want to.

Please, please, *please* send me to /dev/null if you don't like what I say. 
It solves your problem, It solves my problem, it solves every one's problems.

As of cygwin/mingw, its unrealistic to expect an implementation for something that
has split the two projects for months, in *days*. I'm still working on getting an 
environment to my satisfaction for goodness sakes. 

Give me a month or so. And please, if you don't want to hear what I say, or otherwise
disagree with what I say, redirect me to /dev/null!
