This seems like something that cygwin should support, but they haven't wanted to
instigate an escaping mechanism for this.  So, maybe this should be a patch that
the cygwin folks apply (perhaps shipped in the "patches" dir) that would
transform certain names and characters when opening/creating a file, and
untransforming them when reading the names via readdir or parsing the
command-line args.  Someone would need to choose a reasonable escape
char/sequence.  Any suggestions?
