It all depends on what you want to do with it and wahtr limitations you
are able and willing to accept, but those dependencies are what makes it
hard to have that "portable Cygwin".

And no, you don't need to run rebaseall each time you use the stick on a
new system, but it may well not work at all for entirely different
reasons if you chose NTFS (and a host of other problems if you don't and
go with FAT32).
