Humm, not nonsense (it works for English), maybe not correct... (is this
retrievable for replacement?)
Anyway, the idea (if not the impl) stands, when a network user installs
cygwin HOME is set to doc & settings. When a local user installs HOME is
set to /home/user. So, should network user functionality be changed?
(assuming it's possible to get the localisation)
