Well, hold on there, cowboy.  Jan Nieuwenhuizen is listed as the teTeX
maintainer for cygwin; I think to proper course is to ask Jan to
update/switch cygwin's TeX system to TeX Live, and make the case for why
it should happen.

I think "teTeX has been dead upstream for five years" is a pretty good
argument, actually.

'Course, we haven't heard from Jan since last Novemeber

Jan? You still there?

I observe that I installed and use MiKTeX, which is a native Windows TeX/LaTeX, but I call it fine from cygwin scripts and such without difficulty. It was a seamless cutover. (I did it to have a version more similar to that of some colleagues, with whom I am working on a book.) So ... I am not sure that there is any great benefit to a cygwin-specific version.
