This is a very preliminary "proof of concept" patch that allows `git jcheck` to work with git from Cygwin. It is incomplete, and is missing the necessary checks to allow it to continue working with native Windows git.

@edvbld @rwestberg - I submitted it this early to get your high-level feedback on whether this support is something that you have already thought about already; if not, I'd like your feedback on the approach.

The idea would be to check whether we are are using a Cygwin version of git (this should be trivial), and if so, do the conversion between the `Path` strings and the input/output to the `git` command in all of the necessary places in `GitRepository` (that should be the only class that needs to be modified).
