I recall trying to get GIT (which comes with it's own mini posix environment), 
ack-grep (not part of cygwin, and requiring a windows version of perl), SSH (I 
think from cygwin) to get along, while trying to keep thing like find-dired and 
find-grep working.

Admittedly it's more of a general unix-on-windows problem.
