I'm sorry, but this is not quite correct. The recent discussion about
"rolling your own" was not about an installation, but rather about
cygwin1.dll. Which would be expected to coexist with the "official"
cygwin1.dll. I think providing your own *mirrors*, whether in CD form or
on a network, is indeed encouraged. Anyone wanting to do that is directed
to read <http://sources.redhat.com/cygwin-apps/setup.html> if they also
need to create a custom setup.ini file.
