Then stop talking about it here.

We were wrong to be discussing it here.  It should have been done in

However, at least we were talking about making sure that there was no
loss of functionality in 1.7 and how /etc/fstab* files would be created
and formatted for the actual cygwin release.

OTOH, you want to talk about your personal needs and are suggesting
changes to the Cygwin DLL.  There is nothing in the charter of this
mailing list which would suggest that was appropriate.

And, since you were told once that this wasn't the place for you to
talk about this, that should really have been sufficient.

If you really feel the need to talk about this further then move to the
cygwin-talk mailing list.
