 Hey, what is this?  Are you trying to make me look like an idiot??

 Oh! Did I do that?

 I plead no contest.  I skimmed it.
 In any case I don't believe Larry has been following his own rules.
 His posts have been driving me crazy for a long time and I finally flipped.
 I think he's the primary cause of this long conversation "about the list"
rather than "about Cygwin".
 There I've said it.
 It's clear from the other responses that nobody agrees with me (in
particular Chris Faylor doesn't agree with me) so I'll shut up about this
issue from now on.
 (Yes, I know what kill files are for.)
