A wholly excellent idea IMO :)
You can run into the occasional confusion about PATH ordering where there are
utilities of the same name. This generally happens with 'find.exe' and
'link.exe'. Since the cmd.exe version of find is completely useless when
compared to grep, and since I only invoke link.exe from devstudio, I put the
cygwin bin dir at the start of my path and let it override windows tools.
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
