Forget about "init 5" or "init 6", in Cygwin most services are installed as
Windows services, and as such they start with the OS and stop with the OS (or
under your control -- Windows Manage Services or net start/stop/restart ...)

Wrong, if you install the inetd or the xinetd package in Cygwin, follow the
instructions in /usr/share/doc/Cygwin/<name and version of package>.README, then
you end up with a Windows service.

The big question is: what services do you want?

There is an initscripts package but I would recommend to stay away from it (I
have not tested it recently but a year ago it didn't work for anything but the
sample) and xinetd depends on it so the same goes for it.
