"cygferrari"? ;-)

Seriously, though...  "cygprogopts"?  "cygoverride"?  Come to think of it,
"cygoptions" works pretty well, especially if we plan to add other
functionality, such as setting heap_chunk_in_mb & co.  Are there other
(undocumented) options that need this kind of control?  Do we want them
all controlled from one script, or from a set of scripts?  Would it make
sense for the script to act based on a name through which it was invoked,
as well as command line parameters (and provide symlinks with these

Also, should this script be in /usr/sbin instead?
