Why don't you just try it? Both wslbridge and wslbridge-backend must
reside in /bin, hard links will work of course.

Mintty 2.8.0 simplifies WSL integration a lot.
In Cygwin, you can simply start e.g. mintty --WSL=Ubuntu (add -~ to start in
the WSL home).
Does it mean that 2.8.0 does not need wslbridge [*] any more?
No, sorry, I forgot to mention that wslbridge would have to be installed
in /bin to make this work.
As it is not a Cygwin package, I have installed wslbridge in /usr/local/bin/,
which is in the system Path in Windows format, so also in the Cygwin path in
Unix format - will this work?
Would a symlink, winsymlink, or .lnk as /bin/wslbridge to /usr/local/bin/?
