I have a script to update Cygwin. This script checks for new version of
setup, downloads, verifies signature, etc. Things would become much more
complicated with variable setup file name.
Finally: Why should I care about the exact version number of setup?
Script makes backups of the old setup files like setup.exe.0001, 0002,
..., just for a cause, but never in the past I did have to looking for
the setup with exact version number.
