- SYSTEMROOT/SYSTEMDRIVE
- Generalized Cygwin settings interface???
- Documentation doesn't contain new subauth_id CYGWIN setting and
  ntsec documentation needs a lot of work. Hmm, ignore this.

IMO, if we plan to update to 1.3.3 within another month I think we can
ignore all three points for now. Especially the subauth stuff... I
would appreciate if only developers use it for now. I don't want to
release the subauth DLL before I have at least some docs. I plan to
add an installation script later.
