	I'm confused. You have, on a fairly often basis, lamented the
fact that no-one other than you and Corinna seems to take responsibility
for reviewing cygwin patches and changes. You seem to be indicating that
you want more input into cygwin. Yet when I do just that, on a patch
that is certainly not harmful (while maybe not optimal). I didn't
realise I was overstepping boundaries when I checked it in, so I'd
appreciate it if you could restate those so I don't do so in future.

Fine, back it out (as you did). That's not a big deal. Just to be clear:
I'm not upset that the patch was reverted, simply confused.
