1. Is there what in some other OS's is known as a "meta-package" 
for something like xfce4"

2. Alternate version of question above: is there a base xfce4 
package whose install will corral in the collection of xfce4 
packages needed to get a first approximation to a working 
desktop up and running?

3. Can the Cygwin packages collection be searched for a single 
file to find what package provides it? Example:

mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust 
upon them.
