I think I worked on (or was familiar with) packages as far back as v16
but I don't remember much about what was in them.  It's likely that they
just contained the minimum needed to build gcc and gdb, though, since
that was cygwin's initial primary focus.

Since I remain satisfied with the files in the base category, I see no
reason to change.  If I was to change, I don't think that the above
criteria would make sense for a base category.
