Before someone suggests adding a google link to the cygwin site, let me
reveal that I had the idea to do that last year but the collected wisdom
of the people who, with me, run was that we shouldn't
be using the non-free google software for our searches.  So, the idea
was vetoed.

I'm trying to convince myself that I have the power to do this just for
cygwin but I'm still getting stuck on that 'non-free' thing.  At some
point pragmatism may win out over zealotry, though.
