yes, but a far better, more foolproof, and easier solution would simply to
include in setup.exe an easily invoked option, say, a single checkbox, that
would allow someone to download everything. it's a REAL PAIN
checking all those boxes, and the process of learning that one
MUST do that to get everything is even more painful. i speak as
a--rapidly aging--cygwin newbie who had to check ALL the
boxes in the not too distant past. keep in mind that the people
who want to install EVERYTHING are disproportionately
newbies, so porviding a simple way to allow that to happen
