We've only had one success report for this so far, and even that seemed
to have generated some confusion.

Given all of the hoopla on the Cygwin list about this functionality, I'd
feel much more comfortable if a few of the complainers there tested this
also.  I'm not willing to go through this amount of pain very often so
I'd like to make sure we got things right the first time.

So, I'd prefer holding off until a couple more people try this out.
