Your recommendation makes total sense.  I will do it soon: not today, but

I am just a little nervous.  I have been using 32-bit Cygwin for at least 15
years, and being without it throws me into a tizzy.  (I barely know how to use
WindowsExplorer.)  Are there any gotchas I should know about?

Please keep us up to date with your valuable scripting efforts.  I have
checked your script, emails and the followups into revision control, for my
own purposes.  I'll let you know how it goes.  Maybe eventually we can get
your work up on the Cygwin web site?
