OK.  Then it would be best if you could make cygwin1.dll non-rebaseable.
Otherwise, rebase will have to maintain a blacklist of DLLs too.

I can easily leave a hole for cygwin1.dll (and other DLLs).  However,
the question then becomes how much space should be reserved?  Right now
0x120000 is "needed" -- unfortunately, in the future, more may be needed.
What happens then?

Adding rebase functionality has uncovered more issues than I initially
imagined.  Assistance determining the essential requirements would be
greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jason
