Sure, that one, I have nothing against (since it doesn't affect Unix in any 
way :).  I'd like to hear the opinion of others more experienced with Windows, 
though.  I have zero basis for judging whether it's a good idea or not.

But in principle, unless someone objects on technical grounds (with an 
explanation), I can put that one in.

Thanks for heeding my call for -u patches, but please send them as 
attachments.  It's much easier for me to save a standalone diff file than to 
mess with either cut/paste (which always has problems with some email clients, 
and I need to use several different ones), or saving the whole email and then 
retrimming it.

For various reasons I use multiple mail clients, so I have no integrated tools 
for handling patches directly embedded into the messages.  Having them as 
attachments with a proper filename makes the process much smoother.  I know 
there are others who prefer inlined patches, this depends a lot on how your 
toolchain is setup.  Sorry to insist, but given that for contributors it's a 
small effort, but for me that extra time is multiplied by all patches sent, I 
really must.
