Hmm, that's what I thought, but when it turned 4am, I went to bed.
Anyway, the good news is that I've added all these as tarballs to the
repository, and wrote some commands to set essential registry entries.

The bad news is that it doesn't really work yet, it seems that python
needs more registry entries to know that it's running on windows.  Or
maybe it's a different problem altogether.  Lily,tex,yap,gsview seems
ok, but ly2dvi barfs.

All setup stuff is now done in /etc/profile.d scripts.  We'll have to
move the install/registry part to /etc/postinstall/ scripts (a feature
of the cygwin installer).  This is nice, because it means that we can
script all installation stuff in bash, and possibly generate dos
wrappers that need no intelligence.

And then, we'll have to get all scripts do the right things, and get
it to work.  I would very much appreciate some help with this.
