  Yes, was using that just the other day myself, to build a replacement ws2_32
dll consisting entirely of forwarders to the real dll with a handful of new

  So, we could in theory replace the old entries in libgfortran with
forwarding entries that point to the newly-available cygwin dll
implementations and that would allow old programs to link.

  I think however I might wait 48 hours and see how many people complain and
how big a problem this is.  If Marco only has a handful of Octave users, it
might be easiest to just do the transition once and for all and get it over with.
