Sorry. I missed the question.
No. It shouldn't be a "w32" command. I approved the w32 sub-part
because I thought it had a distinct meaning. In your use you were
providing info on data that came straight from Windows. The "set shell"
command has nothing specifically to do with "w32".
If we were going to be really pedantic about it, we could add a "set cygwin ..."
command, I suppose. I don't see any reason to impose that extra level
of keywords on a user. If we did that then presumably all of cygwin gdb's
extra commands should go under "set cygwin ...".
