Bring Out Yer Dead!

What about package managers that don't interact with cygwin setup?  Why
not build `apt-get` et. al. to install to /opt/?  Yes I know it would be
a system within a system within a system, but it might be worth a shot.
 This, especially if the "cygwin setup" package manager isn't open
source (I thought everything cygwin was, but I guess not).
