Is this what you meant Eli?

Something like that, but I doubt that using cp-out with MSYS and
Cygwin is a good idea, since they don't support that.

The only reason to use cp-out-dos for MSYS and Cygwin is that this makes the output correct for w32 console programs they may run. However I do not know if it creates some problems since I do not know the char tables very well. Maybe it is better to just leave the coding system for MSYS and Cygwin as before?.

Do we agree about the cmdproxy part? How about installing that?
