I'm confused as to whether you are being sarcastic or truly seem to
think there is a distinction here.  Simple question, does MySQL require
the cygwin dll's (or statically linked to) to run?

If the answer is yes, then there is little question that they are as
"emulated" as is the current PostgreSQL/Win32 effort.

Care to expand on exactly what you believe the distinction is?  ...or
did I miss the humor boat?  :(
