Personally, I feel a good test is whether it's something people are going
to look for coming from another *NIX platform or not. There are people who are
looking for the pager 'more' since that's what they used on SunOS 1.0 or
something. No one is going to be asking, "Why doesn't cygwin have 'mkshortcut'
or 'cygstart'!?!?" since they are cygwin-specific. (Not entirely true of, for
example, unix2dos but close.)
Hopefully people who are looking to use cygwin-specific apps are more likely to
read the mailing lists, use the packages web page, etc.
