I was going to try to get all the --help/--version patches in for the
next release, then patch utils.sgml at leisure. My logic is that the
binaries are hard to change, but the using-utils.html page and the
cygwin-doc package (which I have full control over) are easy. Also I
may have a lot of questions on certain explanations in utils.sgml
(about, for example, setfacl or strace) that really are not related to
the patches but could slow down the patching if I were working on it at 
the same time.
