He also deleted my response to the guy who suggested that Windows does
copy-on-write so we could modify NTDLL.  And, now I can't seem to
respond at all.

Sure.  We could just figure out where to modify NTDLL in all of the
versions of NTDLL that have ever existed and then stand on our heads
to modify the memory in place every time a Cygwin process is started.

And, as Corinna says, this all flys in the face of Cygwin's philosophy.
