  Perhaps the best place of all to put them would be to write them in the form
of text file which we could add to cygwin cvs as how-paths.txt along the lines
of the various other how-* docs files:

  However that would most likely require you to complete a copyright
assignment form for redhat (and get a disclaimer from your employer if they
might claim rights over your work).  Dumping it to the mailing list is indeed
a reasonable way to get it archived and searchable.  Developers list is
probably more appropriate than this one - it's not likely to be terribly
interesting to most of the audience here!

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
