  That section was written by DJ Delorie, and as you noted, it's very Cygnus
specific. Not only that, it only refers to remote Win32 testing. It would
be good to rewrite this section to be more generic. This section predates
Cygwin, and since DejaGnu now runs on Win32 using Cygwin, there is probably
no real reason to document remote host testing to a Win32 machine.

  Go for it, if you want. I'd love to get some contributed docs. I'm obviously
not much of a writer...
