_Cygwin_ by itself, as in, an application for it's own needs, not rely on
specific registry settings.
However, there's a number of _system_ settings, which may affect behavior of any
application, that fall into certain criteria.
In case of HKCU\Console\*, it is any console window matching the name of a
subkey. Or any console window, for default color/font/behavior settings.
Likewise, application/library registration in
_will_ affect every application in the system.
