I am using the current cygwin installed by cygwin.exe.
Also on the same machine I need to use an older versin of Cygwin so I
wonder what's the best way to have two cygwin environments on the same
machine, under the same user so they don't collide.
The Cygwin DLL strives to be backward-compatible (i.e., any applications
that run using the older Cygwin1.dll should also run using the newer DLL).
Is there a reason you really need the older DLL around?

Yes, there is a reason. The company we currently work with supplies their own building environment cygwin+watcom c++ and they stress that it won't work with the latest cygwin. I wish they had just used the latest stuff that I use!

Make sure your path never contains the tools of the "other" environment.  This
kind of environment is only for those that know what they're doing though, so
you're on your own if the setup causes you problems...
