Cygwin for Monoers

I am playing with the idea of creating a modified installation of Cygwin that would be optimized for building Mono from source.

This Cygwin installer would have a Mono prerequisites package and a modified (.bashrc) template file so that all of the development environment variables would already be preset upon first install/run.

The user would just insert a CD into the drive and follow the Cygwin setup instructions for installing from a local directory. There would be a Quick start tutorial video to help with the installation of Cygwin.

My prototype already measures 450 MB, so there is no place that I have access to where I could put the ISO image for downloads, so I would have to mail those persons interested a copy of the CD.

Is anyone interested?
