How about (as an option) automagically transforming in the following fashion:
<reserved>.* <-> <automagic prefix>_<reserved>.*
eg Unix aux.sh -> Windows $_aux.sh
Provided this is done uniformly you should be able to turn it on and have otherwise cygwin-pathological Unix builds work, without encouraging people to create M$-weird files.
Obviously there is a problem of any escaping convention - what about real files with the automagic first component - but a suitably bizarre choice of prefix should effectively eliminate this problem (at least to orders of magnitude below that of filenames like aux).
Disadvantage: wouldn't help with people using (eg) WinZip to unpack a tar.gz containing aux.sh.
