The "fix Cygwin so it handles long paths properly" discussion continued on the 
cygwin dev lists: (and follow-ups)
and (and follow-ups)

but appeared to stall on a combination of technical (worries about breaking 
existing code, possible gcc changes required) and legal/process (no copyright 
assignment from author) issues.

There was another brief sighting on gnu-arch-users: see (and 
follow-ups). But it isn't a particularly enlightening exchange...

Judging from Chris Faylor's reply in the change (or a 
re-write of it to avoid copyright issues) still hasn't made it to mainline 
cygwin as of March this year.

Perhaps Rob Collins can elaborate as to the current status?
