$ ps -h
ps: unknown option -- h

Pretty sure I have the latest greatest "ps".  "man ps" says:

       The  ps program gives the status of all  the  Cygwin  pro-
       cesses running on the system (ps = "process status"). 

but that doesn't mean *just* Cygwin processes, and it isn't 100% clear
what a "Cygwin process" is.

(Oh wait... now I see the slight ambiguity in my question... I should
have said "... that 'ps -a' will list..." explicitly excluding the -W
