 This one has new features (compared to setup-2.340.2.5.exe) that I like;
it keeps _almost_ all settings as they were at the last run. i.e. less
clicking - real nice.

*minor* hitches remaining:
 - "Create Icon on Desktop" stays set *unconditionally*
    unlike "Add Icon To Startup menu"
 - Regeneration of MD5-sums every time "Install from internet" is
   not selected.
  (Can't these be saved in a time-stamped file?
   Then timestamps compared to the download directory timestamp?
   Resetting the file timestamp to the directory's after re-genration.)
 - No GUI resize (Yes I know, a major rewrite)

And NO, I *won't* subscribe to cygwin-apps at this time.
