I actually wrote one of these years ago. It's checked in here:
Hmm. I'll check if I like it or if I like mine more. :)

Have you made any more progress? setup.exe has always been problematic for me, as I regularly use 3 distinct repos: the official one, cygwin ports, and mine. The newest setup.exe is giving me fits, and I think it's time to grab either your or Chris' script and start hacking something that does updates the way I want them done.

Chris' simplier cygupdate works fine.

Mine is a bit more complicated and I'm still working on the dependency logic like setup.exe. I've put it to my svn repo at

Patches appreciated.
