We do not have the machinery in place to do an md5sum of everything in
the cygwin release directory and, since that would be a time-consuming
task which, IMO, would be of little benefit, I, personally, don't plan
on using my currently sparse amount of free time to do anything like

Wow.  You can't *tolerate* this?  I guess you'd better look into writing
your Congressman or something.

If setup.exe is not downloading everything that it says it is downloading
then it is a setup.exe problem.  If you want to do something about that,
debug setup.exe.
