Me too. I had a few issues with side-by-side installs early on; gave up
and ran 1.7 inside a VM for a while, but since mid-December returned to
the side-by-side setup. Since then, very few worries.

That's my plan, as well: I'll update each of my existing packages one
final time for 1.5, usually with a simultaneous release for 1.7. All
future updates will then be 1.7-only.
However, I've been stalled for the last month or six weeks. All of my
cygwin-available time has been going into libtool and related efforts
(dlltool/binutils). My queue of un-reviewed libtool patches awaiting
acceptance is getting unmanageably long, so I'm pretty close to just
punting on getting "official" acceptance and bundling a cygwin-only
release with those changes incorporated. 8-P
