   INTERESTING THREADS
   ===================
   
   Development of Windows version of Ruby.
          Phil Tomson brought up a valid point regarding the Windows
          version of Ruby. Cygwin is being dropped in favour of the
          Windows version which is compiled with MSVC. However,
          functionality is now lost that we used to have under the Cygwin
          version, such as popen. An interesting thread follows.
          
   .'s in Dir.entries
          A short while ago there was discussion on the list about the
          Dir.entries not returning the current directory (.) and the
          parent directory(..). Matz asked for a list of the pros and
          cons for filtering out dot files.
          
   Community style question
          Ron Jefferies asked the community for an opinion on "style".
          Two code snippets where presented with a call for peoples
          preferences to either or others, and why.
