Who's using "CYGWIN=tty" and why?

There is no need for CYGWIN=tty as far as my use of brltty is concerned. I 
can still run c:\cygwin\cygwin.bat having taken out the tty from the CYGWIN 
var. If I discover massive emacs malfunctions I can always defect to the vim 
camp. :-)

I'm curious why the tty command in mintty reports /dev/tty<n> but that's 
by-the-by and probably belongs in a different thread anyway.
