Okay, I never actually used Emacs with both window's and Emacs knowledge
of PATH merged, but I figured one could.  I played around for a short
bit and then submitted my lightly tested answer to the wiki.

With the c:/cygwin/bin PATH absent in the Window's PATH I start Emacs.
I then do `C-x h M-| wc'  Nothing.  I then eval the settings on this url
and I get a count of lines.  I think this means it works.
