I'm not sure what you're basing this statement on but under the hood, the
Win32 APIs understand both / and \ as path separators. So there shouldn't
be a difference at the API-level between NT-based and 9x-based systems in
terms of the path separators they handle. This should translate into all
the Cygwin-based tools directly. For any other toolset, YMMV.
