Re: [Mingw-msys] something wrong with my MSYS installation?

We called it as last resort from a win32 application using popen(),
thus reading the output directly inside the win32 app.  We used an
'enhanced' cygpath version anyway (merge between cygwin and msys
switches), but I'd definitely vote for 'keep'.
