It's because you remove networking function from putty, right. IMHO
this feature will help many user (especially who come from Windows
word) and will give sort of additional point for Mintty (regarding
flame war between mintty and rxvt).
I don't know the relationship between networking function in Putty with
duplicate session feature in code point of view, but since this based
on putty code I hope this will not give some sort of difficulty to
adopt this feature in mintty.
