I've uploaded a setup-1.48.exe to latest.  This includes most of the
features you've been hearing me talk about on the mailing lists.  All
the sources are in CVS.  Please try this (it should be safe to do
while running cygwin apps!).  ChangeLog entries (I don't think Chris's
included the new tar code):
