Well, I would think that if cygwin tags a file as executable, then it would also be able to translate its path to execute appropriately. In the same way than when a file starts with "#! /bin/perl" cygwin would mark the file as executable and invoke /bin/perl to "translate" the path, I would think that cygwin would mark ".bat" files as executable and invoke the MSDOS shell to execute them (i.e. "translate" their path).
Am I making false assumptions here?
