As usual, it seems that a point was missed. "Seconding" doesn't do
If you want to add a command-line package management tool to cygwin
nothing is stopping you. Propose it like a normal package. I would
insist that anyone who does this vows to stick around for the support
problems that is sure to follow however.
I even wrote one of these myself but then quailed at the thought of
scores of "it not work, i need install cygwin, u fix?" email that
would be sure to follow if I actually formally introduced it.
