[Gnu-arch-users] Arch On Cygwin(Win32)

Hi folks,

as I'm interested in {arch} but need support on win32 (cygwin will do) to
adopt it , I came up with the following thoughts:

The only accesses to the file system that require realy long paths are
internal to {arch}, and not strictly user-visible, ie. in the project

tla could create a file ~/.arch that actually contains
long-filename-capable filesystem (eg. ext2) and route all accesses to
/my/local/dev/path/{arch} to ~/.arch(/my/local/dev/path/{arch})

To make this work, the vu_* commands should detect the {arch}
subdirectory, and perform the equivalent of chroot.
(Also, the repositories themselves would have to go inside this fs)

Calling tar and gzip should be replaced by vu_tar and vu_gzip
that go through the vu_* interface.

Any thoughts on feasibility of this?
