Yes, I have done it.

The problem is that you need to link to the Python DLL. The only way I've
found to do that is to rebuild Python under Cygwin. Unfortunately, the
regular Python import libraries don't seem to work. On my machine, I have to
add c:/cygnus/lib/python2.1/config/libpython2.1.dll.a to the link line.
