Yes, and nobody proposed otherwise.

OK, here it is again in a nutshell, it has two parts:

1. instead of adding the windows PATH in /etc/profile (which doesn't
need it _at all_), just record it there into ORIGINAL_PATH.

2. Add a script to /etc/profile.d which concatenates the Cygwin and the
windows path to provide the same net result as todays /etc/profile.

I hope this avoids more TLDR;
