If the client part is linked into the DLL, it should be in the cygwin
directory, sure.

I think we are not at the point where we include this in the cygwin
directory, though.  I'd like to discuss how we are going to be interfacing
the client code with the cygwin DLL, though.

I'm not yet comfortable with making it an integral part of the DLL.
