Maybe I don't understand the issue.

Let's take the operation of file-executable-p, for example.  Should
that operation for /cygdrive/d/foo/bar.gz return information about the
compressed or uncompressed file?  If the latter, the Cygwin handler,
if there is one, should be called before jka-compr, or else jka-compr
will say that the file doesn't exist.  Am I missing something?
