Geoff is in the process of redoing the handling of Cygwin's mount table.
We're redesigning the layout of the registry but it occurred to me that
there was a long-running thread in gnu-win32 where people seemed to be
advocating for a simple /etc/fstab style file.

Does anyone have any opinions on this?  Should we drop the registry in
favor of a file?  Obviously there would have to be at least one entry
denoting where the root was located but should that be it?
