Accept the fact that setup doesn't support updates yet, and publish
instructions for a manual upgrade.  It's not that hard to do if cygwin
is already installed, except that the dll needs to be moved into place
manually, which means untargz'ing in a temp directory, and using
explorer to move the files into place.
