Missing the point slightly here, I feel, which is that pivoting should

Wow, what a bunch of people saying "we don't need Metasploit on Windows"
! However let's have a look at the stats:
About 4400 sites are running version 2.4 on the Windows platform.
About 1600 sites are running version 2.4 on the Linux platform.
About 70 sites are running version 2.4 on the MacOS X platform.
About 55 sites are running version 2.4 on the FreeBSD platform.
About 20 sites are running version 2.4 on the OpenBSD platform.
Exactly 2 sites are running version 2.4 on the NetBSD platform.
Exactly 2 sites are running versino 2.4 on the Solaris platform.
Exactly 1 user figured out how to hide his OS information via -O.
Nearly 75% of Metasploit users are running Windows ! I guess they did
not find the way to subscribe to the mailing list ...
My vote : we don't need a Cygwin bundle with Metasploit, but ensuring
compatibility with Cygwin is still useful for many people out there.
