;-) What would you think about distribution of 
Win32 version with install.bat script asking you 
to choose whether you want to put cygwin1.dll in 
system32 or your new bin directory? While Linux 
is moving to desktops little bit more, there are 
more users who don't know details of their OS. 
Such people might be perfectly able to find the 
appropriate information, but they might not be 
interested to have to do it just to install 
something and possibly test what it can do for 
them and whether they should continue using it or 
throw it away.

My 2 cents, anyway
