;-) 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
