Thanks.  These are useful, but as you suspected they address the entry
problem rather than display.  I currently use the environment variable
substitution which works nicely with ido.el (it does expansion so that
completion is available).  

`cygwin-mount.el' interferes with the `directory-abbrev-alist' solution
because it grabs the abbreviation and expands it relative to the Cygwin
root directory before the abbreviation is expanded.  Maybe if this can be
corrected, I can use the `directory-abbrev-alist' solution because it
seems to do much of what I want.

This is useful and I've modified it for my use.
