Ask on cygwin-patches what Chris wants to do with it. It's best discussed

BTW, the patch is not complete; certain functions don't work. It's main
purpose was to allow reading and writing files with Unicode filenames -
something that wasn't possible at all before.

Saying that, it did work quite well with UTF8 aware shell tools and a UTF8
