Arguments like this is the reason I had to spend years searching through

Actually I agree wholeheartedly, which is why I I'll make my own
frozen mirror, and deal with whatever happens after that myself.
Since these environments are frozen and isolated, I have not had any
problems.  This is also something I only do for my own personal
environments; I won't consider it for public production.

I believe Corinna mentioned (and I will re-interate here) that the
"Cygwin Time Machine" is at your service. It contains every(*) snapshot (circa) release of Cygwin, should you happen to need something from the past. I don't tend to advertise this much, but it is publicly available. :)

(*) well, as far back as v1.3.12-4 (2002/08/13/043102)
