I think that libgetopt++ probably belongs at the same level as winsup but
there are some, er, political issues that need to be dealt with if that
is the case.

So, for now, I guess making it a winsup/cygwin sibling makes sense.

Btw, if you want to set up a web page off the cygwin directory, that's
ok, too.  I don't think I could justify a new top-level web page given
the fact that I've rejected some other attempts to start up new projects
on sourceware due to resource limitations but adding it into the cygwin
hierarchy should be ok.
