If i compress a dir in the home directory using WinXP native compressing,

Yes. Compression is taken care of by Windows at a very low level. Cygwin
is a layer over Windows. Cygwin will never know the difference.
BTW: Wouldn't that be wanted?
I think of something like chattr, applied to NTFS.
Now that we have chattr in e2fsprogs, wouldn't that be a wanted addition
to recognize NTFS also, for chattr and lsattr. Otherwise it's another
e2fsprogs nameclash. Because I cannot think of a better name to modify
the NTFS index and compression flags, and in the future for the extended
chattr [+-]c would be quite easy to add.
SamRobb, Do you knwo if tytso thought about that? Anyway, I filed a RFE
For the other flags I don't know the WinAPI that good.
