Hey Andy,

After a thorough 2-minute evaluation, I can give you the following feedback:

1.  Good work.
2.  Super fast.
3.  Cut and paste in a Unixoid terminal for Cygwin finally conforms to
Windows norms (AKA "The One True Way").  That alone is worth it.
4.  I wasn't getting color from ls, but that appears to be a
termcap/terminfo/wrong-bash-invocation issue, as your screenshots clearly
show color support.
5.  It needs a regular Windows installer.
5a. I'm good with Windows installers.  You want I should whip one up for
you?

This will likely become my default terminal unless a more thorough
evaluation turns up some showstopper.  Excellent work!
