Does that mean it will replace the current beep, or is it a rejection of the
patch? I would really like this - Beep() can be quite painful if you're
wearing headphones!. MessageBeep would be controllable via the volume
settings, but Beep is just a maximum volume blast!
Does it really *matter* for there to be lots of options in CYGWIN? I can't
see any disadvantage at all.
