I was hoping for an orthogonal location that would be *just* for Cygwin
specific files.  This would allow us to install all of the "standard"
documentation and have our own post-install README's in a discrete location.
Something like:

*	/usr/doc/Cygwin

as a base directory for our documentation.  Then later we could add:

*	/usr/doc/Cygwin/FAQ/*
*	/usr/doc/Cygwin/UserGuide/*
*	/usr/doc/Cygwin/API/*

Anyway, just pick a subdirectory for the crucial postinstallation files.
Perhaps PostInstall or README-1st since README-1st carries a little more
urgency in the users mind than the ever-ignored README.

Well that's my 2 cents/pfennigs/centimes/forints/centavos/etc. worth.
