The series is ready as is to support Cygwin platforms, and
thus useful to people who would use git on windows via cygwin.

Future work will be to add support for Msysgit.  That work
will need much of the changes in this Cygwin series as well.
It is more complicated since there's no native python for
Msysgit (yet).

I think the Cygwin changes should go in now.
