Thanks all for the feedback and help. Sorry for showing up at a bad time.

I made this suggested change, and think I got everything uploaded.
looks promising, anyway. Guessing the sdesc from setup.hint doesn't
get indexed as often?

Now I should write to cygwin-announce, yeah? And we can remove p7zip
from https://cygwin.com/cygwin-64bit-missing.

That wasn't so bad! I skimmed through the list of orphaned packages
to see if there was anything else that I'm familiar with building from
source, but nothing jumped out at me.
