The msys setting is ignored on OS X (and Linux).  Maybe this should be shown only to Windows users so everyone else is not confused.

Theory of the Universe

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarrely inexplicable.  There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
