Suggestion for the Cygwin developers:

What about a file in /etc that contains contain environmental variables
that sets cygwin-specific variables and overrides anything in Windows'

It would also make it possible to clone an installation by
copying - no need to modify the environment.

See https://cygwin.com/ml/cygwin/2010-01/msg00977.html

Sorry, I'm not a coder and cannot contribute a developer a cannot
propose a path.

As previously:  "Just a suggestion, not a request."

Best wishes,

- Barry
