I have finally finished the above and generated a patch against CVS.
Hopefully, (really) late is better than never.  See attached:

    cygdrive.diff:    patch
    ChangeLog-cygwin: cygwin/ChangeLog entry
    ChangeLog-utils:  utils/ChangeLog entry
    cygdrive.txt:     sample usage session

feedback is gladly accepted.
