I believe this is what I will end up being forced to do. Many of the other
fixes could be used if this were just my system, however I have to
assist over 30 developers scattered around the country, most of whom
are Cygwin illiterate (other than running a simple build script).

The mount point idea would work, except that every developer gets their
local sandbox in different areas of their drives, and most have multiple
sandboxes active for work on different branches.

The only truly annoying thing with binary files in Perforce is that it
makes diffing and merging much harder.
