Of course it's not supported per se(*) -- but it IS allowed.  Just don't 
do it wrong: Doctor, it hurts when I leave the timestamp and version 
lines out of my setup.ini.  Then make sure your custom HAS 
timestamp and version info.  Sheesh.

(*)Support implies some obligation on our part to make sure that your 
intended use works.  We accept no such obligation -- our obligation is 
to insure that the cygwin dist itself, as propagated on the mirror 
system, works with our cygwin setup tool.  Period.
