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!
