I have found it very useful to be able to generate "private" setup.ini
files via update-setup.  For example:

    update-setup /misc/cygwin jt

splices a "jt" branch onto my local Cygwin mirror.

Do you envision any way to accomplish this, when (and if) update-setup
meets its demise?  Note that I'm quite willing to do the work -- I'm just
trying to make sure that the necessary hooks are in place in whatever
will be generating setup.ini going forward.
