If fish needs a new maintainer, it looks like not a hard package to
maintain. It has a simple and up-to-date cygport script, and builds OOTB
with just one small source code patch.

It sort of works. When I change my shell to /usr/bin/fish in /etc/passwd
I don't get any error messages, as I first reported. But the environment
isn't set up correctly. The main problem seems to be that although I'm
running 64-bit cygwin, the directory for 32-bit cygwin is mounted as the
~> cygpath -w /
By comparison when I start fish from bash, I get:
aschulma@LC77E1AASCHULMA ~> cygpath -w /
This is a pretty serious problem. Any thoughts on why it happens?
