[ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: run-1.3.0-1

The run package provides a simple application to launch console programs
with their console hidden.

This is a bugfix update. It should operate as normal on cygwin-1.7.21
as well as other versions of cygwin.  All previous versions of run,
including 1.2.0-1, are broken on cygwin-1.7.21 and newer unless
recompiled on cygwin-1.7.22 to take advantage of a compile-time fix
that version of cygwin introduce.

Note that this package was NOT compiled on cygwin-1.7.22, and does
NOT employ cygwin's new compile-time fix; instead, run's own code was
corrected to work properly, with the cygwin-1.7.21+ runtime behavior.

CHANGES since run-1.2.0-1
* Avoid failure on cygwin-1.7.21 vs. GetCommandLine not being populated.
  This was fixed in cygwin-1.7.22 but it's good to clean up this code
* Massive refactoring to share implementations (at the source code
  level) with run2.
* -wait need not be the first argument
* New options --run-nogui, --run-notty, --run-verbose,
  and --run-debug[=N] controlling how run.exe itself reports
  error conditions and other messages.
  + By default, it is silent. If any messages are enabled
    via --run-verbose or --run-debug=N, then they will either
    be reported on stderr, or in windows popup boxes.
  + stderr is used if run.exe is launched from the cmdline, or
    if --run-nogui.
  + Windows popup boxes are used if run.exe is launched by
    doubleclicking it or by a Windows shortcut, or if --run-notty.
