Easy to spot once I focus on the filename and the Windows path it contains: even under Cygwin I am running the Windows easy_install, and so it reports that SQLAlchemy is already installed in Windows!
I chickened out of running ez_setup under Cygwin, and just used the "download tar, unpack, run setup.py install" dance. Happily this installed everything perfectly (so far as can currently be discerned). So life goes on.
