Hi Harold.

I've just subscribed to the list to tell you the same thing about arch and
xouvert. Some small problems have arisen using arch in cygwin and there
was a consensus that changes needed to be applied to cygwin to have a nice
and full support. The problems were related to path lengths and, maybe, 
you could help us with this issue. It would be a nice initial cooperation.

The problems with changing path structure in arch archives is backwards 
compatibility, nothing else. Maybe if you subscribed to the list we could 
have a formal discussion and see what remains to be done in arch or cygwin 
to make it usable for you.

Keep up the good work!
