thanks for providing these informations.  I'm confident that you're following
all necessary licensing issues.  Just one additional hint, even though I'm
pretty sure you know this:  Since you're providing a Cygwin DLL in binary
form, you also have to provide the source code of the same version of the
DLL by the same mechanism.  So your user should be able to get the DLL
sources from the same place as the DLL itself.  If that's done on your
web page, I'm happy :-)

Thanks again for adhering to the licensing,

P.S: Unfortunately I can't answer your original question.  Max?  Brian?
