As a user "emacs-with-deps" single zip file would be a tremendous
help.  I spend a fair amount of time trying to get Emacs and cygwin to
play along, then give up, then harass Eli for help and then try some
random stuff from the Web and then get continually surprised by
strange behaviour of cygwin paths and win Emacs/bin file clashes.

Make it simple so that users have only themselves to blame. :-)
