I think we should wait.  Currently, the cygwin-xfree dist is 
developer-friendly (e.g. download lots of tarballs, run a script and 
answer lots of questions, and the script will install and configure 
stuff "properly").  Translating that into a setup-compatible tarball 
will take some work; IMO it'd be better to have a (mostly) stable 
setup.exe *before* asking the cygwin-xfree folks to embark on that task.
