OK, I need to be clear. I have nothing against the enviroment variable
idea. I was making (a little) joke.
If you'd like to see this happen, I'd suggest offering it as a patch
to 'setup.exe'. Since I'm not the gatekeeper for 'setup.exe' code,
whether or not I'm convinced it's a good idea isn't necessarily
going to help or hurt your cause. The patch is likely to be the path of
least (though not necessarily 'no') resistence.
I forget, does Cygwin offer the option of installing for 1 user vs.
"all users"? I only remember it being installed for "all"...?
Both are offered in 1.7.
