No, because the DLLs used by bash are OFTEN the ones that actually DO
need to be rebased (because they are used by darn near everything, so we
need to ensure that their image base does not conflict with anything
else): libintl, libiconv, libncurses, ...

You're missing the point of rebaseALL.  Murphy says that if you don't
rebase dll A, then dll A *will* be the culprit the next time you get
that 'unable to remap' error.

With regards to your earlier .bat file idea...Meh. You shouldn't need to
DO it that often -- certainly not often enough to clutter your start
menu or desktop with a shortcut!
