The only reason I suggested "Cygwin Project\Cygwin" is that it's
supposed to be a two level hierarchy, company\product, matching the
current "Cygnus Solutions\Cygwin" arrangement.

However, after a quick jaunt through HKLM\Software on this machine I see
that there are a good number of programs that forego the two level
custom and just put keys under HKLM\Software\Foo.  So, with that in
mind, are there any objections to simply HK{LM,CU}\Software\Cygwin?
