BSD file flags support in Cygwin?




Does Cygwin have any support for BSD file flags (UF_* flags, such as
UF_HIDDEN, etc.)? These flags are often used to provide support for
Windows file attributes (FILE_ATTRIBUTE_*, such as FILE_ATTRIBUTE_HIDDEN).

OSX and FreeBSD provide such support during stat(2) and chflags(2). I
expect that Cygwin does not have such support, but wanted to double-check.
