I wouldn't mind making MinTTY a regular cygwin package.  It sounds like it
would get enough votes.  In fact, if it operates like an xterm on Windows
maybe it should even be the default program that is invoked by cygwin.bat.
I think that would alleviate a lot of confusion.

Puttycyg is a different story.  I don't really feel comfortable having
another ssh implementation in Cygwin.  The call is obviously Corinna's in
this case but that's my 2c.
