I like this idea, but I think this functionality would more properly go into
the BASH patches for Cygwin than in the Cygwin DLL itself. Since BASH (like
all Unix shells) processes metacharacters in command lines itself before
sending them to the application, this would be an natural fit for that
section of the code. The only real tricky part would be figuring out how to
allow BASH to figure out whether an application is Cygwin or native Windows
(or is that easy?).
