Sorry but this is the cygwin-developers list.  You're expected to do
more than just point and wonder here.  You're expected to be current
with the Cygwin in CVS and up on what is changing there.  And, you're
expected to offer some insight.

If you want to just post numbers without offering "development" insight
then please use the cygwin list.
