Setup's "Choose a download source" screen...

When I run the Cygwin setup program, the second screen titled "Choose a download source" has 3 radio buttons. More often than not I select the one labeled "Install from Local Directory". Unfortunately, setup does not "remember" that selection the next time I run it, always defaulting to "Install from Internet".

I suppose I could patch the file like so:

SourcePage::OnActivate ()
+ source = IDC_SOURCE_CWD;
load_dialog (GetHWND ());
// Check to see if any radio buttons are selected. If not, select a default.

But it seems a better solution would be to have setup save whatever I last picked in setup.ini or in the Windows Registry.

How hard would it be to implement this feature? I suppose given enough guidance I could implement it myself and offer up a patch.
