Why does setup insist on trying to install colordiff?

No, all I did was touch the file on cygwin.com a couple of hours ago, hoping 
that it would be enough to trigger a setup.ini regeneration.  But before I 
touched the file, it _already_ was in Utils (in fact, in the original ITP, the 
setup.hint was already listed as Utils, never Misc).  And looking at cygwin.com 
right now, it looks like touching the setup.hint was not enough to trigger the 
desired setup.ini regen; setup.ini still wrongly claims it is Misc.  So the 
problem STILL exists, in spite of my attempts (unless I misunderstand how 
frequently setup.ini is regenerated).
