Basically, yes.  The next version of Cygwin will still run under XP with
a high likelyhood since I didn't remove any code yet, and I didn't addd
any OS function calls not available on XP.

However, I don't test on XP or 2K3 anymore, and I'll mostly ignore bug
reports related to running under XP in future.  As soon as a new version
of Cygwin won't run on XP/2K3 anymore, I'll let everyone know early
