If PoPy is client-side code and not something that loads into the
server, then I'd discourage it from using any headers that are not
installed by default in 7.1.  Which headers are in question here,
and what breaks if you don't include them?

As for your more general question, what you need to answer is whether
you expect users of the Cygwin distribution to be doing server-side
code development.  If they are, they'll want the full header tree.
Otherwise it's just clutter.
