Ah. But what if you want to link to:
rxvt.exe -rv -fn "FixedSys" -e /bin/bash --login -i
--or--
command.com /E:4096 /c bash.exe --login -i
from the working directory c:\cygwin\bin 
--or--
http://www.cygwin.com/FAQ/

My point is, there are a lot more possible options
in W32 shortcuts that seem to be supported by the
setup.exe mklink2.c COM interface.
