I'd prefer that you move it elsewhere.  The cygwin mailing list page makes
it pretty clear that it is intended for the cygwin that is officially
released.  Watching people poke at cygwin, attempting to figure out how
to use it in a way other than the officially supported one, is clearly
off topic.

I'll again note that I think this attempt is misguided.
