Yeah... It kind of bugs me that they are soooo intent on *JUST*
installing SSH/SSHd. Cygwin, in its entirety, offers so much
functionality that it is stupid not to install everything. Having
BASH as your shell (instead of command.com) when you SSH into a
Windows box for instance, is a great feature.
Basically, SSHing into a Windows box without a full Cygwin install
is a pretty empty experience.
