Perhaps, but this is really a sh issue; on cygwin, those special paths are
used, but the shell should really be taking care to only pass that form
to cygwin apps (similarly, DJGPP has /dev/c/usr/blah type paths, but it
takes care to convert them to 'regular' DOS paths when passing them to
non-DJGPP programs).  Besides, what's stopping you from using a
mingw-compiled bash?
