You are missing one of the reasons for Cygwin - to avoid changing
standard unix tools to deal with Windows p:\aths.  So this is not
something that we'd consider.

That's because it isn't required.  We are temporarily putting [1.7] in
the beginning of the subject while 1.7 is in beta but there is no
requirement that 1.5.25 should be put in the beginning of everything

You'll note that problems.html does talk about including cygcheck output
as an attachment, however.  The version of Cygwin is obvious there.
