I figured maybe somebody else would talk to him.

I do have something sitting in my "postponed" folder on the chance that
I see any further indignation coming from the OP's direction about his
imaginary requirements for how Cygwin should work.

GPL requirements is something that I have grown to really detest.

Anyone else want to contact this guy?  I'll bet he really loves free

pick on people who are supporters of free software and his lawyer said
it was ok.
