Danger, Will Robinson: the g++ from gcc-4.2.0 does not have any support 
for catching exceptions thrown across DLL boundaries.  Nor does it 
include the fix for empty strings (PR24196).

The former problem can be solved by building libgcc shared, and 
libstdc++/libsupc++ shared.  Absent modern libtool support (which is 
partially present only in trunk), this will be tricky.  But even when 
you get an initial DLL version of these libraries, there will certainly 
be a long shakedown period...

So don't anybody here on the cygwin list get too excited yet. <g>
