I don't think so. Look at the code of cygpath and you'll see that these two
functions are only one half of the functionality. If Rob has to provide -w
someone will ask for absolute paths or short names, etc. So better have
a posixish tool and use cygpath for general conversion.
Just my 2c (Cygpath contributor).
