Cygwin provides not only a <sys/wait.h> implementation, but also fork(), exec(),
exit() implementations - that deal specially with the case of a Cygwin program
invoking another Cygwin program. When a Cygwin program invokes a program
compiled with MSVC or mingw, the exitcode that the parent can retrieve will have
the same noninformative value than what we are discussing here.
