	The Dll rebasing needs to be done outside of the hosted
cygwin environment, which is not to say that dll rebasing is done
outside of cygwin.  I don't know about now, but everything to do
dll-rebasing was part of cygwin -- just not the hosted environment
part of it.  

	For example "setup.exe" is part of the cygwin project,
but not part of the hosted environment, so it can replace dll's
that are part of the hosted environment (or tell you that you
will need to reboot).

	None of the above discussion over terminology should
be taken to mean that I believe cygwin should constantly try
to repair actively changing damage done by win10.
