Here's some improvements. I just ended up referring people to Jason's website for install as service, because it's a quite a long and complex process.

Is that README included with the cygwin package, Jason? Because I couldn't find it in mine...?

Is the above needed during runtime too?

Can anyone see *any* use of "sort" that would warrant the above step?

Not in practice. I just dragged it along because it was in older versions of the FAQ.
