Doh!. Whack! Whack!. Naughty Robert.
Seriously though 2.7.0 has much improved win32 support, including
mmaping() of large areas, and an improved sbrk() emulation - contributed
by http://www.genesys-e.de/jwalter/ I believe.
Also, as cinstall and cygwin are not in lockstep with each other, I
think in this case I prefer having a separate file.
