Building cygwin32_ipc-1.03 for v1.0 - questions about v1

I just built the Cygwin IPC package under the v1.0 release.  In the process
I found it required wintypes.h, which was not included in the v1 CD pkg.  I
extracted the file from the tgz of my former b20.1 setup and with that the
build was able to complete.

Why is the v1 release so divergent from b20.1 development -
   e.g. - different set of includes, fairly non-standard directory
            structure, etc.,

Are there any plans for formal patches, updates or new releases following
    up on v1.0?  Even under some kind of paid support plan?

Can the use of the registry be modified to allow coexistence of v1.0 and
a development (b20.1 - b21) installation at the same time?  It seems at
the moment you can only have one or the other operational at one time
by reconfiguring the (single) registry mount table. A "[/whatever]/etc/fstab"
file might be a good thing to tie the registry entries to.

Oh, and one other thing - why no man2 entries?

Questions, questions, so full of questions ... it's been a long morning.
