If you like, why not introduce a namespace CYGWIN:: or Cygwin::, e.g.
there are several modules you didn't mention which are supposed to run
*for* or *with* a specific application like Apache:: or XMail:: or
PLP:: or YAML::, so why not introduce the namespace Cygwin:: (if you
look at Cygwin like just another application).

I would be perfectly happy with a Cygwin:: namespace!
