...the *Dark* side of free (GPL?) software... I guess..
In any case, you could always *grab* their "pacman" manager.. Besides
being very appealing, it would avoid the long thread [*] on cygwin-apps
Why what aims to be a "..Linux feeling - on Windows" should have a
"package manager" (setup.exe :( ) which install deps more o less
silently... apt-get, yum, pacman, port (on OSX) (and, I sure, others)
always warn the user about which packages are to be installed..
Unless you adopt a 'true' package manager, I would not change the
current behavior of setup.exe..
