This would be a true Cygwin package so I don't see a reason it couldn't be included in setup if it passes successfully through the ITP stage.

Sure, if he wants to become a maintainer. He seemed to wrote
the opposite in his first e-mail:

"If nobody plans on creating such a package i may be able to,
however i warn you now: i do not intend on become a cygwin
package maintaner."

You don't want another person who submits a package and doesn't
maintain it. The Links package is a good example.

Yes i will not be able to maintain it, however i doubt that it would be too very hard to find a maintainer, as the packages are already maintained for compiling under windows, so all that would actually be nessisary is to compile it for cygwin after each new release. The key is finding any header files that are needed that you cannot get through cygwin. (Not a big deal, but this has been the true cause of many a message posted to this list regarding SDL.)
