I think you really need to read this:

The fact that this is really important to you does not make me reorient
my priorities.  That's how it works.  I'm doing this for free so I get
to choose what I want to do.  Engaging in a laborious "Now try this"
testing scenario through the next week and into the Christmas holiday
was not how I planned to spend my time.

AFAICT, you are talking about fork, not thread.

Just as my usual obligatory aside: You do realize that if/when you release
your product it will have to be GPLed right?  That means you release the
source code of the product and the source code of the cygwin DLL and
any utilities you bundle with it.
