Ah, ok.  I'm just used to those, as I'm rebuilding from available
patched -src packages if possible.
Do we already have -src packages that adhere to this new convention?

If it's not too late, it would be very nice if they could be
distinguished from the old, prepatched -src packages, by using a
different naming convention, ie foo-1.1-cyg.tar.gz?

My bad, I was thinking of tarring up the patched src tarball.

Ok, but I had conflicting interest: I needed all packages now to
provide lilypond, and couldn't maintain them all for cygwin.  Also, I
assumed, had an rpm or other port caught on, the mirroring at cygnus
would have worked.

Yes, will do.
