I've tried the native Windows version of git while debugging this, and
yes, it accepts Windows-style paths correctly.
The deal-breaking issue with it for me was that it trashed the file
permissions under Cygwin. Every file it touched (be it through clone,
add or any other operation) was set to mode 777, so `git config
core.fileMode false` would've been necessary to stay sane, but that of
course comes with the drawback of not being able to change file modes.
