(In case you wish to not convert arguments that are not paths, check at
cyg-wrapper.sh that I'm maintaining, see my signature)

I have only one .vimrc that is use for windows, Linux and Solaris.
- under windows I have a _vimrc files that sources vimrc_core.vim plus
a _vimrc_win for windows specific settings (fonts, mappings to open
URL in the default browser, ...)
- under *nix, I have a .vimrc that also sources vimrc_core.vim plus a
_vimrc_nix for *nix specific settings (key rebindings (that will be
updated soon thanks to feddback from vim-ml), ...)
I've never used cygwin-version of vim, but it should not be any
