It's not. But it would make much more sense to combine base-cygwin and
base-passwd. Base-files is pretty low priority in the dependency order,
in contrast to the other two.
If we combine base-cygwin and base-passwd into one, we would
have one less problem.
I volunteer to combine them into a single base-cygwin package, if
nobody knows a good reason why the functionality should stay separated.
David, would you like to take over base-files? It's still officially
