I think posix compatibility should be preferred. I like:
    * the three different options (no_sync, sync_once, sync_always)
    * the idea to link a .o so that one of the non-default options
      can be selected without code changes
However, I don't care whether Corinna's implementation or cgf's (so far 
unreleased) one is used.

However, we need to resolve this soon and release 1.7.7, because I've 
noticed that any postinstall script that calls mkshortcut fails, with 
predictable results given our new setup.exe behavior...  If 1.7.7 is not 
forthcoming VERY soon, then I need to release a new cygutils ASAP (and 
run, and run2).
