Ok, I found an answer to the first part - says you need to redistribute the 
complete Cygwin sources, which sounds like a stupid requirement to me, but 
that's the GPL for you.  I wonder if having a link alongside the binary 
download counts as co-distribution.  I can see requiring source distribution 
if you *modified* Cygwin, but otherwise.. it's just kind of dumb.  Worst 
case, you've got to add an extra zip file.

I still don't know about the packagability, though...
