I stumbled across another point to consider here.

On Linux:
$ mkdir foo
$ cd foo
$ rmdir ../foo
$ ls
$ echo $?

On Cygwin:
$ mkdir foo
$ cd foo
$ rmdir ../foo
$ ls
ls: cannot open directory .: No such file or directory

So actually this isn't properly Linux-compatible anyway, which makes
it less worthwhile sacrificing Win32 compatibility for, I think.
