It might, but then you would have to compile all the CPython C
extension modules using Cygwin as well, which is (1) unexpected and
(2) likely to break some
of them not expecting a different 64-bit model.  In addition, I have
no clue about which calling convention Cygwin-on-64bit-Windows is
using, which is important for our JIT.  So no, that's unlikely to be
the right approach to 64-bit Windows.

A bientôt,
