Is there any reason this isn't part of the cygwin
distro.? I would have thought they went along with
I can think of a couple of reasons: size, extra
maintenance time. Both fair enough. But I wonder if it
isn't a hassle if it might be a good idea. I remember
back to my DJGPP days where there was a source, binary
and doco package - perhaps there is scope to do the
same with Cygwin (so setup has a doco option as well
as a source option).
What are the thoughts on this?
