Perhaps you may recall a similar request a few months ago, where someone
was going to "fix" the cygwin headers.
At that time, I said that I didn't want to get into a discussion of the
best way to deal with headers and I mentioned that I wasn't going to
have headers include other headers at that time. That hasn't changed.
Robert, if you're looking for things to do, why not finish the sysv ipc
cygserver work? I think that would be much more bang for the buck
than messing with headers.
