please update the supported Cygwin package list to be distinct for 32-bit, 64-bit or both; and help on how install both in a merged fashion

Try this:
run %ComSpec%

> mklink /D %SystemRoot%\SysWOW64\cygwin c:\cygwin32

Then edit your user envrionment valriable table and add
%SystemRoot%\System32\cygwin\bin to PATH.

This way you will run 32-bit cygwin programs from 32-bit programs, and
64-bit programs from 64-bit programs.

That is, if you start c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe, it'll run 64-bit
apps, while c:\windows\syswow64\cmd.exe will only run 32-bit apps.

Obviously, you need to set up symlinks as Administrator, or give
yourself the SeCreateSymbolicLinkPrivilege privilege. Changing the
contents of system directories might also require you to be the
Administrator (not sure).
