Thank you for your reply, although the news is very disappointing.

I found some evidence of an attempt 2 years ago to port Gstreamer to Cygwin,
but it looks as if that effort aborted.  As cdparanoia will run under
Cygwin, such a port would solve the Windows problem.  Does anyone know the
current status of a Cygwin port?

It would be helpful if statements that the project has ports to Windows of
base releases (such as the one on this page:
http://gstreamer.freedesktop.org/download/) included the qualification that
the port does not include cdparanoiasrc.
