If you're posting something about Cygwin's gcc or Cygwin in general, the
better list is cygwin at cygwin dot com.  As for the statement above, I
think you're better off asking the folks that are responsible for making
the statement.  There's obviously some overhead to the emulated environment
that Cygwin provides but I can't say whether the statement is a general
reference to this issue or to something more specific.
