Looks like a discussion for cygwin-apps. The only thing I would be worried
about is if cygutils is NOT installed but some packages use mkshortcut as
part of their post-install script. Wasn't there some discussion of merging
cygutils into the winsup CVS, or did I not catch that right?
Chuck, do you want to grab the file from cygwin-patches and put it in cygutils?
I'll need to write different documentation than utils.sgml also.
