The answer is "use Cygwin port of emacs under Cygwin".

You could try to support Cygwin paths in Windows Emacs, but I don't know
if that's worth the value.

There are some path conversion functions in Cygwin Emacs (probably not
in Window Emacs), but they weren't available in the last release I used
on Cygwin.
