I understand - but the point is: a cvs log refering to an unqualified acronym
like UAC may be completely unparsable for most users in five years from now
if you do not qualify it or explain a bit of background. Even users knowing
about UAC in general and associating it with the "run with admin privs"
dialog may not know about the very stupid implementation details like
wildcard name matches on the binaries. Certainly the binaries you touched
do not actually require admin privs on cygwin, or if so, that would be
another bug.
