I didn't mean to insult all Windows users in general. I was only
referring to the fact that since the default Windows command line is not
a POSIX shell, even an experienced Windows user might have trouble
figuring out how to execute a shell loop. Putting this functionality in
a git command or script, by contrast, would make it work universally, no
fuss, no muss.
