I disagree.
I have a script to update Cygwin. This script checks for new version of setup, downloads, verifies signature, etc. Things would become much more complicated with variable setup file name. Finally: Why should I care about the exact version number of setup? Script makes backups of the old setup files like setup.exe.0001, 0002, ..., just for a cause, but never in the past I did have to looking for the setup with exact version number.
