A request

I already have these for myself, that is not the issue.  Since Cygwin has a
large chunk of the GNU stuff ported, I was just wondering if sharutils and a
version of dos2unix/unix2dos that is Solaris compatible were going to become
available in the future.

Cygwin makes an excellent platform for doing development work that is being
mirrored on a UNIX box.  Our particular build system makes use of
uudecode/uuencode.  I just pulled down the GNU versions and compiled with
Cygwin using the directions from Dr. David Coe.  The dos2unix/unix2dos I
used were from John Birchfield.

I just figured that more tools would enhance the usefulness of Cygwin.
Perhaps I'm just a little naive.
