You're the only one that needs to remember, and it's only your machine that would need the
the user account. Other people building the package don't have the same … requirements …
you do. They're not distributing what they build. They would just use the cygport and be done
with it.

(Not selling the solution as I have no opinion on it, just pointing out that neither of those
objections are really a problem.)
