Hmm... does it accept any kind of absolute paths?  For example, would
cygwin OpenSSH know how to interpret /cygdrive/c/foo/bar?

If so, cygwin does come with this magical tool cygpath that transforms
Unix-style paths into Windows ones and back (?).  I wonder if it would
be super-ugly for us to make a wrapper script that calls cygpath on all
arguments.  Or if there exists a library version or something that we
could invoke via FFI.
