The cygpid to winpid and vice versa functions are available in perl 5.8.7
and perl 5.9.2; see:

I had thought Gerrit would release a new 5.8.6 with them, but this
doesn't seem to have happened; don't know if I somehow dropped the
ball on that.  In any case, I'm really really hoping that 5.8.7 is
released in the next few weeks.

I don't know anything about problems with Proc::ProcessTable other than
what may have been mentioned in that thread.  Perhaps you'd like to look
into it further?

? "This should be possible" meaning what?  You indeed can't send cygwin
signals (which AIUIkill -9 is not) to windows programs.
