Hmm; cygwin has had some improvements since I first wrote this - not the
least of which is that we redid mounting as part of the transition from
1.5.x to 1.7.x; maybe the real solution is to determine if cygwin now
provides indications of a remote mount point that the code is looking
for without having to drop to native function calls, and kill the
<windows.h> include in that case.  It's okay if that still requires the
use of a cygwin-specific function (that is, use of cygwin_internal would
be okay) if that's what it takes.  It may be a few days before I have
time to properly look at fixing this in gnulib, though.
