Putting the packages directly in c:\Cygwin is ill-advised because it shows up in
the posix directory "/". It pollutes the directory with millions of package
folders. But what if I create a folder c:\Cygwin\LocalPkgs and stick them in
there? From the 10,000 foot perspective, it certainly would be a lot more
organized to have all cygwin stuff in one windows folder.
