Please, I was no way complaining or attacking. To the contrary: cygwin is a
superb platform, excellently supported. To which I can atest: i have been
utterly dependent on it for 20 years. I wish Microsoft could support complex
software systems as well as the cygwin team does. Corinna, in particular, is
a hero to me: she runs a taught ship.
I was just asking for info. Which Achim supplied well:

Fine. Makes sense. I can do that.
And again, thank you all for decades of great work.
