That would be great. I'll need to read up on the package submission 
requirements and process. Unless someone would like to volunteer as the 
MinTTY package maintainer?

I'd certainly like that, although unfortunately MinTTY doesn't quite fit 
the bill yet due to Issue 4 about leaving the console window open. And 
of course it needs a lot more testing.

Speaking of cygwin.bat, is that actually still needed? I find that bash 
can be invoked more directly through a shortcut, and working directory 
and icon can be set there too. The same works for mintty.
