[SCRIPT] Windows system dll function addresses

You forgot to put some indication of your authorship into the header 
comments. I added a simple "Author: Joe Buehler" line when I copied the 
code to a file.

I also wanted to add a URL referencing the message on the Cygwin mailing 
list archive, so I went to the archives, found the message and added this 
URL, <http://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2002-12/msg00721.html> to the header 

But this made me wonder if there was a mechanism akin to SCCS / RCS / CVS 
keywords that would allow one to put some sort of signal string into an 
email message and have it be replaced by the list server with the URL of 
the archive page for that message? Or perhaps the list server could add to 
each message a header with that URL?

I know nothing of the list server and archive building software used, so 
perhaps neither of these things are feasible, but it might be nice idea, if 
it were easily enough done.
