If someone wants to contribute, I think it should just be a standard
package.

Chuck, I hate to say this, but I don't see a real reason for growing
cygutils.  The more packages we add to cygutils, the more we go back to
the old way of installing cygwin packages -- with less fine-grained
control.

Maybe there is a good reason to have a general purpose utils package
that I'm missing.  It just seems to me that this is adding a focus for
the cygwin package release on you -- a single point of contact.
Theoretically, we could be sharing the load if the contributed pieces of
cygutils were made into true cygwin packages.
