Please don't commandeer threads for your own purposes.
If you feel that this must be discussed, please start a new thread.

Apologies for the thread divergence. A separate thread has been created for this matter. I hope the former part of the posting is sufficiently "on topic" to continue though - interactive installations are great for many users and would be a useful addition, but I would ask that consideration be given to those deploying cygwin non-interactively by choice.
