Not if readshortcut/mkshortcut are available. ;-)

Three small comments on the patch:

+/* Hippo URL */
+#define HIPPO_URL "";;

The .jpg file won't have the animation -- I'd make that a .gif, and
hope that either Brian completes the graphic endeavour, or, in case
someone else does, Brian will post the result on his web site.  However,
as a temp measure this would do, and you could always release a new
cygstart if an animated GIF is announced.

+        { "hippo", '\0', POPT_ARG_NONE, NULL, 'i', \
Why '-i'?  Wouldn't '-H' (big-h) be more appropriate?

+          "Show the Cygwin Hippo!", NULL},

Shouldn't this be "Show me the Hippo!"? :-)
