Use the 'mount' command.  In fact, you should be able to simply mount some
particular directories (e.g., the ones the checkout is done into) in text
(DOS) mode for those developers that need this, and leave the Cygwin
installation itself in binary (Unix) mode.  Note: mounts in Cygwin are
(currently) persistent.
