Hmm, I have an amaurotic user, he cannot use setup.exe because he
doesn't see the mouse pointer.  Too bad. 

I'm willing to push this feature, is there some documentation besides
the mail archives or source code?

Also, I remember that there was documentation about installation
without setup.exe, but obviously it was removed from the website.
Would it be possible to have a special website with informations about
setting up a proper Cygwin installation without setup.exe?  This could
e.g. be just a hint that this special information is available on

Is the old website with these infos somewhere available around to have
a starting point?
