Rob supplied the descriptions, I'm sure cygwin will operate without
profile, but would just "Core common files" be sufficient?
Debian's description (slightly altered) is:
sdesc: "Base system miscellaneous files"
ldesc: "This package contains the basic filesystem hierarchy, and
several important miscellaneous files"
Would this be better?

Do you think it needs any shells?
the Deb package consists of: (relevant to Cygwin)
with a seperate base-passwd which "provides the
master /etc/passwd and /etc/group files, containing
allocated user and group IDs, plus the update-passwd
utility to keep them up to date."
Note that I'm willing to do this package too :)
