What about "cygstart mkshortcut readshortcut"? These may be used by
postinstall scripts, the other stuff is extra, afaics.

So, as result, we should do this for a start:
- cygwin-doc drops "Base" from the categories.
- dos2unix adds "Base" to the categories.
- cygutils drops "dos2unix" from requires.
