:) No, all that would do is guarantee that a mutt using ";" couldn't read

:) The correct solution is to implement a corrected spec.

A correct spec will not solve the problem, because we already have the 
problem. I believe that the solution is to take action and not to wait for 
someone else to act upon this. What are the chances that we all agree on 
using "-" for cygwin? (I think "-" is a bad choice because a dash could be 
part of a domain name, but it's not a problem if that's what is decided 
upon). Who is the maintainer of fetchmail, so that we can get him/her into 
this thread?
