*Without* scripting the full installation.  From the viewpoint of my install
package, it's infinitely easier to copy three files into a temporary working
directory, run them, then delete them, without worrying about a full
installation of Cygwin.

I do realize this.  What I'm asking is no more than this: is a full Cygwin
installation required in order for bash.exe to use rsync.exe to read from
and write to the local Windows filesystem?  Or are these two files -- plus
the cygwin.dll -- sufficient for this purpose?

Thanks for the quick response, by the way.
