Not to be pedantic or anything, but I'm genuinely confused here.  It was
my understanding that Cygwin aims for POSIX compliance, but:

Did you mean to just verify the API so we avoid backward compatibility
issues in the future, or did you really mean full compliance?

BTW, feel free to ignore me if you wish.  I wasn't volunteering just yet.
