Thanks for the patch. I've been swamped with the Cygwin/X transition,
so I have yet to take a close look at this.
Sounds interesting, but I wonder if there is another way to do this
without actually tarballing each package.

cygport as a whole needs to be documented. I would prefer to use a
doxygen/gtk-doc type system to build documentation from the code and its
comments, but I'm not aware of any such system for bash. Perhaps there
is, I just don't know.
