I agree.  I guess I was looking for some input from OP on what direction would be 
most useful to him.  If he'd like a workaround patch directly in order to make 
progress sooner on whatever direction he's going, I can provide it.  Otherwise I 
would engage with the Python maintainer /* pause, looks up maintainer, oh Hi 
Marco! */ to get the patch into Cygwin's Python package(s) for future release in 
due course.
