The OLOCA [Official List of Cygwin Acronyms] is available for the referral
of newbies and your perusal from your friendly neighborhood CKOA [Cygwin
Keeper of Acronyms] at <http://cygwin.com/acronyms/>. I'm sure I've
omitted plenty, but this is a first raw try, so do be considerate.
Perhaps now we should have an FAQ entry for "What the ! at #$% is 'YOWTWYWT'?"
that points to the OLOCA... Eventually...
