Interesting, when I read the instructions, I read that install_cygwin.ps1 is run as admin, and ./setup as a normal user (due to the fat warning before running ./setup).

My thinking was to have the chocolate steps in install_cygwin.ps1 with our "defaults" and command line options to overwrite them.
