Call me Mr. Silly, but why is a Cygwin version of Darcs preferable to a
native binary?  Last time I looked at Windows (which was, admittedly,
about six years ago) cygwin was a bloated, messy pile of confusing and
unweildy junk -- and that if you could get a utility (e.g. bash or grep)
as a stand-alone .exe, it was *much* easier to deploy.
