No real expectations and not a complaint about cygwin. Just more of a
frustration of trying to merge the *nix and Windows worlds.
My problem is not within cygwin itself -- it's with trying to use cygwin to
also do Windoze-related tasks. In particular, I am trying to extend a
*nix-focused rsync-based program to do a better job of backing up Windoze
systems by capturing as much of the ntfs structure as possible. So, I am
trying to understand ACLs, reparse points, the MFT, etc.
Cygwin is of course awesome...
