You can adopt the libevent package yourself, which relieves Yaakov -- 
who maintains Cygwin Ports -- of the burden of maintaining it.

libevent is in Cygwin Ports to satisfy cyphertite, ocaml-libevent, and 
transmission.  So, before adopting it, think about whether you want to 
place yourself in a blocking position for those packages, too.  That is, 
if libevent needs some fix or update to allow those packages to continue 
working, you'll be pressured to fix it even though you do not need the 
fix yourself for tmux.
