The idea of optionally loading cygwin-mount I will however steal from you, thanks ;-)

Perhaps slightly tidier:
(when (require 'cygwin-mount nil t)

One thing that I at the moment have commented out is setting of process-coding-system-alist, because I do not understand when it is needed. I myself is using CVS Emacs (the developers version) and that might be the reason, but I do not know. Can you maybe explain why and when it is needed?

Cygwin programs require (and output) Unix line ends. Since about 20.3, Emacs has automatically detected Cygwin programs and set the coding-system for talking to them appropriately.
