I personally think this is a very exciting thing to get right.
Being able to run an emulation layer like msys/cygwin would
stress the hell out of the fundamental APIs, and would ensure
a solid implementation in Wine. Not to mention that:
  -- they are OSS, making debugging a bit easier
  -- they have _lots_ of tests that can be run automatically
  -- said tests could dramatically enhance and broaden the
     available regression tests we have

Adding to this mix stuff like Java can only extend coverage.
And we would be tapping into a huge barrage of tests.
