In the thread associated with the message that Robert cited, I point
out that the GCC F-O-M is a very poor example of how F-O-M should be
used!  That said, I think a Cygwin F-O-M would be a great idea, if
done properly, and I would be willing to convert the existing "user"
FAQ into F-O-M, but I think it would be a lot of work and I don't know
where the time would come from.

Cheers,
David
