No.  With Corinna's patch to add CYGWIN=transparent_exe option, we are
asking for problems if we distribute a script alongside an exe.  (I've
been meaning to check for any other violations of the idea of providing
more than one file in the set {foo, foo.exe, foo.lnk, foo.exe.lnk}, since
I would like to see transparent_exe gain more light).
