The only reason I can think of to make it a cygwin app (and I think it
is a powerful one) is for the path issues.  If someone wants to rebase
cygwin, maybe the README could tell them how to do that, e.g., make a
copy, rebase that, use Windows tools to copy the rebased DLL back to

I don't think that rebasing cygwin should show up too often.
