Your patch may be a good idea but I still think that base-cygwin (and
maybe base-passwd) should be a dependency of every package in the
distribution. I think that every package which currently relies on
cygwin should instead rely on base-cygwin and every package which does
not have a cygwin dependency (and there are a quite a few of those)
should be forced to rely on base-cygwin.
In my experiments, that forces base-cygwin first in the dependency order
without any setup.exe changes required.
