  Not an unreasonable idea, but very hard to make work when we really want
cygwin apps to basically be windows apps; I can't see how cygwin could support
e.g. an ELF loader and yet still be able to launch cygwin apps from cmd.exe
rather than having to fire up bash or whatever.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
