Yes, cygwin pays attention to #!, but we _certainly_ don't want to
test the code going into the Windows installer using Cygwin's Python
-- the Windows installer installs an entirely different Python (Zope2
repackages and installs the native Windows Python from python.org). 
That's why it's a good idea too to do all testing from a DOS box;
getting any part of Cygwin into the testing means it's testing stuff
we're not shipping.

Good plan.

That's not my understanding.  My understanding (confirmed by
eyeballing the checkins) is that Yuppie changed setup.py to add some
test files used by ZClasses and ZODB, but left the failing tests in
the Zope3 part of the code broken.  I expect setup.py needs more
changes to get those working.

Good enough for now, I agree.

I would if I were him.

It probably helps if you're in the same time zone as Andreas.  He
always does things half a day before the earliest I expect him to do
them <0.9 wink>.
