Ls POSIX style slink output

What do you think of changing "ls -l" to display symbolic links using
POSIX style paths instead of Windows style?

When I run "ls -l /etc", the symbolic links are displayed using Windows
format ("C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts").  It would be easier to
copy and paste the output to a "cd" command if "ls -l" displayed a POSIX
style path ("/cygdrive/c/WINDOWS/system32/drivers/etc/hosts").
