Yes, the cygwin-developers is intended solely for discussion of Cygwin
development.  I didn't set up this mailing list as an expert forum for
people to discuss things that had nothing to do with Cygwin.
Regardless, if the idea was implemented, as Corinna says, this would
slow Cygwin down significantly for a corner case condition.

Please find somewhere else to discuss this.
