I agree. You'll find a number of advantages doing this too, as others
have mentioned, such as interoperating with cygwin's mount points,
paths (using '/') and everything that cygwin buys you over plain
win32. One additional feature of cygwin-compiled binaries is that
they respond to bash job control, if you want to background or
interrupt the process. win32 processes dont't.

Isn't the cvs you are talking about the cvs available through the
cygwin installer? If so, then with cvs you've already gone the
built-with-cygwin route there and that could be why it "just works" in
your cygwin environment.
