Note that from my POV there are 2 issues here:
1. ASDF should run correctly under cygwin.
2. At the moment, the only way I know of to run the tests on Windows is
through Cygwin, since they are based on make and a shell script.
It is possible that at least #2 could be eased by running under MinGW,
but I have never used MinGW. It sounds like it might not have as many
pathname incompatibilities as Cygwin.
I don't know if I can install MinGW without breaking my Cygwin install.
I'd hate to mess up my (extremely brittle and rickety Windows VM). Any
advice (probably off-list would be best) would be much appreciated.
