Sorry, should have been clearer about this: modifying cygpath to add a feature to
get the correct case for a path. Perhaps we could figure a way to use "dir /b" -
but I'm sure other people will hit this same issue in the future and would
appreciate such a feature in cygpath. If you agree this is a good idea, I'm
prepared to do the groundwork.
Failing that, I think it would be ok to assume that the path will either be all
caps or all non-caps - corresponding to FAT or NTFS. Anyone tweaking the case of
such paths/files on NTFS quite deserves their fate!
BTW, I'm subbed to cygwin so you don't need to keep copying me on mails.
