Greetings, Stephen Paul Carrier!
I don't mind renaming the file myself, but would really appreciate any
way to know from the cygwin.com front page exactly which version of the
setup-*.exe is on offer. (The current version of Cygwin DLL is useful,
but not the same thing.)
That may (will!) confuse people not familiar with insides of Cygwin
Possibly, but it doesn't strike me as overly difficult to explain
that these are different version sequences. We also might be able
to make the two numbering schemes look sufficiently different that
they would be harder to confuse ...
