I would rather we didn't, primarily because the modification to make tcp
wrappers work with Cygwin was simplistic.  In fact, at this point the
modification is only to the Makefile, plus a line in one another file.  
It is my understanding from Mumit Khan that the tcp wrappers author is
going to incorporate this patch into the next release of tcp wrap.
Taking that into consideration, wouldn't turning the libwrap into a DLL
cause a (kind of) branch?
