I've been using native Windows builds of Emacs together with Cygwin for
several years now. (Eli recommends against it for very sensible reasons,
but I haven't found anything better and it works well enough for me).

During that time, I've never used setup-cygwin.el. I don't even know
what it does, so I could be missing out, but I wanted to mention that
(at least in my use case) setup-cygwin.el isn't necessary to use Cygwin
with Emacs.
