I need more comments anyway.  Just testing the water before I go all 
out adding them.  I put "Cygwin internal" in because that is what I saw 
in, and I thought it might be some sort of standard.

Will do.  It'll take maybe a week to arrive from New Zealand.  In the 
meantime I have to tidy up the submission a bit.

I've tried to compile the source for Cygwin 1.3.15-2 prior to putting in, but I am having problems with  With 
the rewrite of fhandler_serial::ioctl, and the inclusion of 
ddk/ntddser.h, I can no longer compile.  I have copy of the W2K DDK, 
and tried pointing the compiler at the include directory there, but 
unsurprisingly this doesn't work.  Is there a Cygwin version of the DDK 
headers that I should use, in the same way that w32api provides a 
Cygwin version of the Win32 SDK headers?
