You could always use hardlinks:

fsutil hardlink create <destination link> <source file>

For example:

C:\>fsutil hardlink create cygwin-zsh-hl.bat cygwin-zsh.bat
Hardlink created for C:\cygwin-zsh-hl.bat <<===>> C:\cygwin-zsh.bat
C:\>type cygwin-zsh-hl.bat
@echo off
pushd .
chdir c:\\bin
start rxvt -ls -sr -bg black -fg white -fn "SAS Monospace" -fb "SAS Monospace Bold" -tn vt102 -sl 100000 -e zsh -l
C:\>dir cygwin-zsh*
 Volume in drive C has no label.
