For now, yes, it's intentionalâ the author told me shared libs are not
currently supported on Windows and Cygwin, and I didn't have time to
investigate the issue much further.

I have DLL support in my TODO list for future versions, though.

I'd prefer to have this package "soon" (and be able to package
monotone-0.44) as opposed as having a "perfect" package in a month or
soâ but if that's a problem, we can certainly live with monotone-0.42 a
bit longer.

BTW: monotone-0.44 also needs lua, that is currently available via
CygwinPorts, but not as official packagesâ I know no LUA and am not
particularly interested in managing that package, but i'm willing to
manage it, as it's needed for a package I'm very interested intoâ
