Adding cygwin/bin to dos path

I installed Cygwin a couple hours ago and I added the
bin directory to my autoexec.bat path setting. Put it
at the end so that the UNIX commands wouldn't override
MS commands with the same name.
Mostly I did this so I can call a bash script from a
java program without a lot of OS sniffing.
My question is, was this a foolish and stupid thing to do?
