Worked great. This "exercise" has also raised my comfort level with the 
whole endeavor. To get rebaseall going, I was told to install the 
*entire* cygwin package. Good time to paint a couple of rooms, clean the 
gutters, ... But that install, plus your last suggestion, have me 
further along, to be sure. I am really impressed by the number of tools 
out there that work with, or were developed specifically for, Python.
