I'd like to fix the mintty issue first.

So, do we swtch to mintty as default terminal, yes or no?

If we switch to mintty we don't need the Cygwin.bat file anymore.  But,
shouldn't we keep it anyway for people who maintain some handmade symlink
to it?

If so, should we stick to the content of Cygwin.bat as is, or should
we change it to call mintty, too?

And who's going to create the patches?

Last but not least, shouldn't we add mintty to the Base package
anyway, independently of what we do to setup?
