Errr.. NO!

If you want to use the cygwin1.dll that's a part of cygwin, add
cygwin\bin to your path (drive letter omitted here).
Then you just make sure and remove any cygwin1.dll's from apps you install.
That way you're always using the most up to date one, and never have a
conflict between the version cygwin has installed and what you have in
your windows directory.



Spinning complacently in the darkness, covered and blinded by a blanket
of little lives, false security has lulled the madness of this world
into a slumber. Wake up! An eye is upon you, staring straight down and
keenly through, seeing all that you are and everything that you will
never be. Yes, an eye is upon you, an eye ready to blink. So face
forward, with arms wide open and mind reeling. Your future has
arrived... Are you ready to go?
