This is much better then the suggested cygrunsrv registry check, because 
e.g. the new postgresql-8.0 pg_ctl.exe is a pure cygwin app, but doesn't 
use cygrunsrv as service starter, it has its own service 
registration/uninstaller included.

I would also recommend for all cygwin services to provide proper init.d 
scripts to be able to stop them more easily.

There was a good posted which just requires a running sshd.
I wanted to add this to coreutils when time permits.
