Well, I could just as easily changed all the lines to 
fprintf(stream, "...
I just used :s/foo/bar/12 anyway. I did it with the multiline since 
1. That's how cygcheck, cygpath, etc. do it now
2. I find it easier to read, personally. (It looks a lot like the 
   CLI output that way)

Again, no reason. That's just the way some of the other utils work.
I was going for consitency in all the code in /winsup/utils

Looking at the patch on the website at
I'm seeing something else weird:
+	        print_version ();
+                exit (0);
What's this extra space? That's not in my code. Do other people see it
in their attachments, or is it just in the HTML? I already deleted the
message from myself.
