get-cygwin-package - for anyone with upload privileges

As I mentioned in another post, I've hacked at the get-cygwin-package
script so that it should properly handle -debuginfo packages.  I also
added a --release option which moves the packages into the release
directory after downloading them.  Without this option the script will
only download to a staging area and stop.

If the email contains a string like:

"Please remove 5.42-1" then that package will be removed and temporarily
archived to a tar file in /tmp.

So, for any existing packages, this should be as simple as just piping
email via:

|ssh get-cygwin-package

If there are any problems please report them here.
