That's not *entirely* correct.  WoMan understands old-style Cygwin paths,
but I haven't updated it since Cygwin deprecated //c/ to represent c:/.
When I get around to fixing that I will convert via the mount table using
cygpath, as w32-symlinks now does (although its probably largely redundant
there).  But thanks for the reminder :-)

The solution is to define MANPATH with a DOS-style path, change MANPATH in
.bashrc using cygpath for use in a bash shell, and invoke man through a perl
script doing the same conversion for use in a cmd shell.
