ACK, except "keychaind" sounds too vanilla.

There shouldn't be an extra doc dir for the few Cygwin specific files.

Not if it's just an example.  If it's generic, you're right.

The problem is that this is not a valid ITP.  Karl, I suggest reading and to scan the cygwin-apps archives how
a ITP looks like.  Especially you shouldn't just send the vanilla source
tar file but Cygwinized binary and source archives plus a matching
setup.hint file.
