What's the -W?

Right now we're using this:

    $pwd = `pwd`;

which is about the same as what you suggest, I think, except for the -W

One major problem with all of this is I don't really understand the
interactions between all the different Windows ports--it's more
confusing than the UNIX ports! :-).

If we use `pwd -W` will that work with "normal" (non-mingw) Windows?
What about the msc version (if that ever starts working)?  Etc.
