Is there a way to invoke a shell via `shell-file-name' with additional
command line parameters?

I don't know.  Did you try setting shell-command-switch to "-lc"?

That seems to work. Thanks.

I am trying to use cygwin for certain things on a Windows system, for
example mercurial, ruby or ack.

Why are trying this with Cygwin?  There are native Windows ports of
Mercurial and Perl.  AFAIK, the Windows port of Mercurial comes with
hg.exe, produced by Py2exe.

I know about the native ports. I wanted to try the Cygwin way, though.

Perhaps we could teach cmdproxy about the shebang syntax of Unix
scripts.  The Windows port of Make already knows about that.

By Windows port of Make you mean mingw32-make?
