I guess you're concerned about overcomplicating code just to suppress some

What I was thinking of really though is that the process_info class is
currently silently doing nothing (i.e. populating parent_pid, binary_name,
binary_path with zero or blank) in the Cygwin case, but would probably work
(I haven't tested) if what is currently the Linux-only code path was used
for Cygwin. Sure the code still isn't getting any less complicated, but at
least you'd be adding functionality!

And good to know that clang isn't buggy here after all :-)
