This is the sort of thing I was hoping to do for my collegues. I'm
implementing command line options for the setup program, with the goal of
being able to email people a shortcut to a setup.exe on a shared drive with
the options needed to install/update just what they needed from a
mini-mirror site (i.e. use setup to download to a shared folder).

I'm still working on it (see archives of the cygwin-apps and cygwin-patches
mail lists), but I haven't got a lot of time for this project at the
moment. If anyone wants to help out I am willing to coordinate!
