Michael won't be able to do that. Or rather, he'll be able to patch it but the 
Bioconductor build machines will not build it -- only current and devel versions 
of Bioconductor packages are built.

I guess I'll ask the obvious, and I guess you've got a good answer, but is there 
a reason that you're using R on cygwin? I would have thought that you could 
install and manage R under Windows, and used the Windows executable from cygwin? 
If not in general, then at least for your use cases that involve IRanges?
