You're aware that "OpenSSH for Windows" as well as CopSSH are just
convenience packages of OpenSSH for Cygwin, aren't you?  You get the
same functionality when using OpenSSH within the official Cygwin net
distribution (, just with the difference that the net
distribution always has the latest Cygwin DLL and the latest OpenSSH
version available, 4.2p1 right now.
