Comment (by maphew):

 You can have the two installed side by side (c:\cygwin, c:\osgeo4w) and
 for those occasions when you need to use a cygwin tool add the folder to
 path (or call tool directly).

 set path=%path%;c:\cygwin\bin

 However most everything I used to reach in to Cygwin for is now part of
 the Msys package in Osgeo4w.
