I was looking over some bugs in tracker, and some
of the deal with cygwin. After some thinking,
I guess there's no way I'll find either time or
motivation to look at them. I don't really get why
people are using cygwin, and while that's a personal
opinion, it's not likely to change.

Note that mingw is entirely different matter --
it's just another windows targeting compiler, and an
important thing (again IMO) to support.

So, what should we do about cygwin bugs? I can either
close them all as "wontfix", or I can assign them to
imaginary "cygwin_maintainer" user, until a real
persons steps in to fix those bugs. Any comments?
