Well, that's a bug: convert-standard-filename was meant for something
completely different and has degenerated into an ugly beast whose
behavior is a big mess, so we need a new function instead which is
clearly documented as translating a file-name "valid in the system,
outside of Emacs" into a filename "valid within Emacs".  And it needs to
be hookable so that users can add things like "proper/careful handling
of cygwin file names", as opposed to merely handling "/cygdrive/...".
