I can't recall the details, but IIRC there was chatter a while back that
due to limitations of Cygwin/MinGW you'd decided drop full support for
these platforms from Boost.Filesystem.

Assuming my recollections are broadly correct, does this latest development
now mean that Cygwin/MinGW are again fully supported by Boost.Filesystem.
