Learn something new every day...
*WOW* ;)

I've never even considered trying anything Cygwin-related without at least
setting up the proper mount points - but then, I've never actually had to
use Cygwin without its environment either..

Well, in that case, all one has to do to move Cygwin around is ... move
Cygwin around ;)

I call the cygwin1.dll DLL "Cygwin" - the rest, I call either "The Cygwin 
environemnt" or "Bash", "tcsh", "gcc", "<fill in your favourite app here>", 
or, occasionally, "Cygwin" ;)
