Well, in the context of the discussion about the cygwin bug -- tossing
in that one little change is not an outrageous suggestion.   The
changes that were being contemplated because of a bug in Cygwin
dwarfed a little change to the .listing mechanism.

On the other hand, a change to the .listing mechanism is a silly
result.  (Your server is broken if it can't serve .listing files.)

So it was kind of a reductio ad absurdum thing.
