Not trying to avoid work :) but I hadn't heard that Cygwin's obsolete 
package conventions could cause a problem for users.  What issue does it 
cause for you?  Does it make packages hard to uninstall?  Does it pull in 
other unwanted packages?  Any description of the undesirable behavior 
would help me understand.
