How does this differ from Ralph Engels' ongoing work for an msys v2.0?
Are you attempting to create a third project distinct from both msys
and cygwin? If not, and you're also doing a proto-msys-2.0
implementation based on modern cygwin, why can't you work with Ralph?
Why a separate project?

I'm okay with competition; odds are we'd end up taking bits of each
for the "official" msys-$next.  I just want to understand the goals
and motivation of your project, as compared to Ralph's.
