Considiering this is useful for embedded application development and
such, I think it would be a good addition to the cygwin distribution.
That and the fact that a platform-independant implementation of the ELF
standard is just plain cool! I encourage anyone to check out the
homepage, it is really fascinating. I guess we should get one other
person's opinion and then we'll see what you're packaging looks like.
