  LOL, great typo there.  The blanking people's addresses thing you've got
right, but only half the TOFU thing - you've stopped the TO, but you're still
doing the FUll quote of the entire message you're replying to without any
trimming, including all those useless trailers etc.

  Should be fairly straightforward to implement, as windows I/O functions
support asynchronous operations (called "overlapped" in msdn technology).  You
shouldn't need to modify anything except the cygwin dll sources to add the
functions.

  See
http://cygwin.com/faq/faq.programming.html#faq.programming.building-cygwin for
some guidelines on how to build the cygwin dll from source.  When adding new
functions to the DLL, you also need to list them in the "cygwin.din" file -
that defines which functions get exported and which don't.


    cheers,
