Since there haven't been any strong Mingw votes, I have converted my
rebase to a Cygwin app.  Should I also convert my rebaseall.bat to a
shell script too?

BTW, rebase will ultimately be able to handle in-use DLLs by doing the
MoveFileEx(MOVEFILE_DELAY_UNTIL_REBOOT) thing.  So, rebasing cygwin1.dll
and other in-use DLLs will not be a long-term problem.
