Is there some switch to restore the old behavior here? This change
breaks how I do installs of cygwin and keep it up-to-date. I have a very
simple script that invokes setup.exe with the following command-line
--site ftp://ftp.sunet.se/pub/lang/cygwin --root c:\cygwin --quiet-mode
--no-desktop --local-package-dir c:\temp --packages
Doing it like this has been nice because setup.exe runs by itself and I
don't have to remember which extra packages I want. (A next step I want
to do, but haven't tried yet to accomplish, is to first download the
packages and use a local package repository so I could do offline
installations (if I had pre-downloaded the packages).
