It depends on what you mean by hidden.  Cygwin is a windows application
so obviously it can get to them as could any other windows application
which tried hard enough.  Cygwin just doesn't bother trying to interpret

I suppose it is possible that we'd consider a nicely written, minimally
intrusive patch to use these but I'm not 100% certain that it is even
possible to do this cleanly given the way the environment variable/path
conversion handling works.
