I did, I think -- but read my request again.

I need cygpath to get the system directory (hint: it need not be in
C:\Windows\System32) and cygpath delivers that directory with the
cygdrive prefix and not /proc/cygpath prepended.  I wouldn't mind if all
those special directories would also be available via /proc/<whatever>,
which means I wouldn't even need to fork cygpath for getting there.
