Gets my vote too. A minor packaging issue: is /etc/lftp.conf intended to
be customized? If so, it'll now be overwritten on every upgrade, and you
should use a postinstall script to put it in place instead. If not, you
should mention that fact in the Cygwin-specific README in big friendly
letters (although it would be better to allow system-wide customization).
