Right, but download times for the WHOLE Cygwin tree are still
prohibitive even over average home broadband connections - perhaps
only moderately prohibitive if you find a really fast mirror that can
push it out at near 1MB a second. And a full Cygwin install is not
anything to sneeze at in size - I seem to remember it running on the
gigs of size scale.
