I completely agree with JDF, as this package gets my vote, too. I'd
like to add that I do so because it absolutely *rocks* that Jan is
taking over a complex distribution like teTeX/LaTeX, despite the fact
Cygwin is *not* the primary platform for this individual. I don't know
many contributors out there who would be willing to put such a large
commitment into a project that they use infrequently [if at all].
Eventhough I've not been blessed with musical talent, if this makes
Jan's life easier, then I'm all for it!
