Actually it's just the other way round. The pseudo console serves the 
adaptation of client-side (i.e. native Windows programs) console usage 
to server-side (i.e. pty-accessed terminals) interaction, transforming 
character sets, raw input, signal handling. Most of this is not needed 
inside the Windows console / "Cygwin console".
