Yes, it's theoretically possible, as long as the Cygwin /bin directory is
in the path.  There may be some peculiarities specific to your system that
you'd have to solve (in particular, all the scripts will get Win32 paths
as parameters, rather than Cygwin POSIX paths), but there's nothing major
that prevents you from doing this.
