An important section of the hippothetical (sic) Cygwin book could be on the 
Windows/Cygwin interactivity, from unix2dos, getclip, putclip, cygstart, 
how/why you should use mounts, antiword, activating your shell from Windows-
Explorer, how you personalise your setup with aliases etc-etc.

How you can write a shell script to automate backups etc-etc

I really think there is a need for it!
