For those happy to never been exposed to this acronym: he is talking about
the Windows User Annoyance Coolaid which campaigns with it's brother VUS
(Keep virtualy all Users Stupid) to make expert users (defined as those
users that grok the concept of a "pathname") look like complete idiots.

P.S.: seriously, I think the commit message should be fixed, windows 
termionloogy moves faster than marketing buzzwords, so you should explain
that something claiming to be a user protection feature of windows makes
it painfull to automatically run binaries called "setup".
