I made a patch to cygwin1.dll to support UTF-8.
It allows you to use all of characters and file (or path) names
allowed in Windows, while keeping binary-compatibility with the
current Cygwin. It is fairly perfect except for lack of locale
support etc. So it may remind you of the good old BeOS. See:
(and for bottom readers...)
When will we see this in the main-stream cygwin?
Soon? :-)
You can answer your own question.
Look here: and see if you notice
any patch submissions.
   I am not certain, but I'm interpreting that as a "no".

For people who "know" and are experts in a topic, the answers are self-evident.
For those who are not, we may not, not only not know where to look but may
not even know the right question.

Also, I don't expect my interpretation of some information or reality to be
the same as someone else's interpretation. Often I find my interpretation is
different from other's.
