Very True, but Xfree/Cygwin does not... It should probably stay that way :).
The way cygwin uses the registry for mounts makes it less flexible. For
instance, it is not easy to maintain multiple installs of Cygwin for this
reason. I would hate to have it that way for XFree as well... development and
debugging would be a bear. I OFTEN run multiple XFree servers with different
configurations at the same time. A relative config file would be much more
