Essentially, ntsec requires an understanding of the interaction between
Cygwin and NT ACLs that first time users will not necessarily have. If you
have that understanding, and are willing to spend the time to get things
working as you want them - great!. But for an average single-user machine,
ntsec can be a hinderance.
