I would guess that most people who know about cygwin would be in the
same state as I.  They probably are not bothered by the quoting problems
that were mentioned in August and have not taken the time to look into
fixing them.  Personally, I don't think that adding another couple of
hundred of lines of code into the mix is going to entice anyone but I
guess we'll see.
