Cool. Another interesting option could be to remove the domain admins
group as well, if the user is a domain user and, of course, removing
any single user right, similar to the "capsh" tool under SELinux.
I'm just not sure if that tool should be part of the Cygwin package or
a package of its own right. I'm leaning towards the latter choice.
