Thanks for the information, which I did not know about. However, Achim is correct, and this should be implemented on principle, even if there's a bad workaround. When one is working with and providing programs for a GUI-based environment, the program should act as expected as a *GUI*, and not require someone to change contexts to a command-line just to get an obvious feature. The cygwin environment is command-line-based, but the installer is GUI-based, and should function as such.
