That someone is me. I've packaged up dpkg 'cause it is a very useful
tool. It's not integrated with the cygwin setup.exe program at all at
this point, and still needs work: Someone needs to make it text vs
binary file aware for instance. Contributors are welcome (just send me

*sigh*. It's not a dream. www.cygwin.com/setup.exe or
sources.redhat.com/cygwin-apps/setup.html. GPL'd. GUI. Dependencies.
Available packages, Hierarchical categories. Etc. It's focus is on
installing cygwin, which may or may not jibe with your goals here. As

it's primary goal.
