Yes, I feel a degree of ownership:

But, you don't coordinate with me personally.  You use the cygwin-developers

And, she's right.

It's a fairly large task but the groundwork is there to handle it.

I'm not volunteering to provide you with a tutorial in what you want to
do but if you have specific questions that come from reading the code
feel free to send email to cygwin-developers.  Again, I'm not
volunteering to educate you.  That is not, generally, how this type of
thing works in a free software project since we are volunteers and the
code is there for your perusal.
