I'd quite happily settle for something that could drive cygwin bash shells
under Windows, but clearly somebody cleverer than I will have to work some
magic for such functionality to appear.

Presumably manipulating command windows with cyg/bash inside them requires
pretty much the same features as manipulating windows with the Windows
command shell inside them.
