  Ok, that does literally what he asked for (except not quite literally, since
"cdbar" and "cd /bar" aren't literally the same, and also you meant to say
"/cygdrive/c/foo/bar", not "/cygdrive/foo/bar"), but I think we can assume
that he also wants to be able to write "ls /bar" and "pushd /bar" and "touch
/bar/baz/quux" and have them all work.  It's a very limited solution.

  The most meaningful other solution would have been something like

ln -s /cygdrive/c/foo/bar /bar

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