I'd appreciate it.
I'm starting to suspect that there is no good mechanism to automatically
DTRT here for [cygwin-1.5/cygwin-1.7/mingw] x
[w95/98/Me/NT/2k/XP/Vista/Svr200x/W7] x [every app known to mankind],
and that a command line option to override the internal heuristics may
be required. Don't you just love Windows?
FWIW, I've added run to the cygwin-apps repository, here:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvs/cygwin-apps co run
but you'll need to 'autoreconf -fvi' before building it.
