  Well, I'm not going to suggest it there myself, because PCYM.... is an
entirely cygwin-list-specific thing.  (I've noticed we have very different
etiquette here from the remaining sourceware lists, all of which are much
keener on quoting people's email addresses and indeed on Cc'ing everyone in
the thread personally rather than keeping it to the lists and PCYMing.)  So
it belongs on that page even less IMO than it does in the OLOCA or FAQ.
"How to configure your mailer" is indeed a generic and non-cygwin-related
question, but "How to PCYM...." would be meaningless anywhere else *except*
somewhere cygwin-specific.

  I guess the best thing is to leave it documented in the place where it
already is documented: in the many many archived threads from this list
where it has been mentioned, and we just have to hope people will remember
to STFW when they're told to PCYM.....

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
