Did you happen to follow the "setup.exe sucks" thread over in
cygwin-apps?  Basically, it boils down to the fact that I and others are
not really thrilled with setup.exe in its current form.  While it is an
impressive program in some ways, the UI is (apparently) too
non-intuitive and the mean-time between bug fixes is too long.

Are you aware of a setup-like program out there which "gets it right" as
far as UI is concerned?  It would be nice to transition to an
open-sources alternative which was actively supported.
