I retract this third suggestion. On investigation of the bash source,
bash still treats \r as a non-IFS-whitespace, so while it has some effect,
it is not a complete way to ignore \r\n line endings.
I may still be able to add a cygwin-specific shopt for this, but recommend
a text mount in the meantime if you are forced to use \r\n endings.
Life is short - so eat dessert first!
