Would there be any advantage to you, if I were to add a user
customisation hook into the distributed msys.bat, so you wouldn't
need to hack your own customisations in, any time you upgrade?
(Say, have it call msysite.bat, if it exists in the msys startup
directory, just before invoking either rxvt.exe or sh.exe)?
