It is indeed a natural assumption that the phrase "to demand that

Andrew, relax. And pay attention.
I was paying attention. He addressed me. The assumption is natural.
The whole thread was about people who did seem to demand that
something be done. You chimed in to defend them.
I chimed in to over another view point, not necessarily defend.
Igor is quite aware of that, as is anybody who bothered to read the
previous posts. By the way, I agree with Andrew that "fix it yourself"
seems a bit harsh as a response to an obvious newbie.
cat > fixit.yourself
This has been requested before. For details you may want to search the
archives. Please remember that most of the work on Cygwin is done by
unpaid volunteers. If this feature is important to you, you may want
to consider volunteering to fix it yourself.
Yes this sounds much better though I'd perhaps add a little something
about how to search the archives.
