Huh? I think you're not fully understanding my suggested approach. As
I pointed out in my previous message, it should be 100%, fully usable
in the POSIX environment. Again: any path that might be problematic as
a Win32 path can just be stored as a POSIX path, and would fall into
the bucket of "works inside cygwin but not outside".
