This list is relatively general but I don't want it to become a place
where people think they have a captive audience of knowledgable people.

If you're porting an application to cygwin then it's an appropriate use
of the list.

I am, however, usually perplexed by questions of "is X implemented" when
it is relatively easy to look at the sources and decide.  Or, you can
even do an "objdump -p" on cygwin1.dll to see if the function is
exported.

Why, as a last resort, you can even look at the project web page, which,
in this case, actually mentions "System V shared memory calls".
