1. cygwin-condition: there's a comment now, but it's still quite
   unclear. How should this argument be used? We need an example.

   I'm beginning to think it should look something like:


   The comment says, "should be a set of properties which are present
   when we're building with cygwin gcc," but (if my theory above is
   correct) that fails to indicate the primary distinguishing feature
   of the argument, which is that it must identify the cygwin-gcc

2. Also the comment says: "This argument is not used yet," but it
   clearly /is/ used. Code branches are followed based on its

3. The logic in this file that is used when the cygwin branch is
   followed seems to have been copy/pasted from the v1 python support,
   with all kinds of ends left dangling. For example, what do all the
   CYGWIN_PYTHON_DEBUG_* variable settings do? Nothing AFAICT.
