Yes, that was the original idea.  But it had two drawbacks, it had to
be installed into the WINDOWS/system32 path plus adding a registry key
and ob-reboot, and it only worked well on 2K but not on NT4, AFAIR
(No XP on the horizon back then).

I'm in the progress of beginning to think of starting to plan to create
a real authentication package for Cygwin... for about three or four years
now.  The frustrating lack of example code from Microsoft and the Net
holds me back :-(
