what about "real" versioning of the cygwin.dll finally?
perl did the half-baked thing (perl56.dll), though I heavily voted for 
the real thing that times. 
cygwin also (cygwin1.dll). why not cygwin-$(version).dll => cygwin-1.1.6.dll

this is not FAT16 anymore. we have w95/98/ME and NT systems only. 
all support long filenames.
duplicate dll's will be gone. microsoft dll hell will be past tense.
