Wol's was given a very good example of how we do things differently from the Windows and ignored it entirely. Are we to blame CYGWIN because it ships the underlying packages via RPM.
Just a nit (since I've fought with Cygwin's distribution system half a year ago and was kind of surprised by it's baroquiness). Cygwin does not use RPM. It uses tar.bz2 files plus an external file with MD5 (yes, MD5 - in this day and age!) hashes for said files and only that one file is signed.
