zsh has historically had pretty strong cygwin support so I don't think
this will be an issue.

I would be thrilled to have this in the distribution.  I've been using
my own version of zsh for years and have been meaning to submit it
as a package.  I even went as far as incorporating it into mknetrel.

I'd be happy to have some other victi, er, person to deal with the
inevitable questions, though.

One minor question: isn't there a libncurses requirement for zsh?
And maybe a libintl-1?
