I've now created a release-2 area.  I used a somewhat intermediary
approach.  The dirs are real dirs, the tar.bz2 files are symlinks
to the release area, the setup.hint and md5.sum files are copies.
The cygwin subdir only contains 1.7.0-1 packages.

Chris, could you please set up another upset which creates the
corresponding setup-2.{bz2,ini} files?

Brian, could you please prepare a temporary setup-1.7.exe which
only downloads from the release-2 area?
