I think eventually running all tests on Windows without Cygwin would be a step in the right direction.

Internally we did a very preliminary POC of a version of run-jsc-stress-tests for windows which built perl scripts for the test scripts rather than shell scripts and were able to get a bunch of the tests running. We attached that to https://bugs.webkit.org/show_bug.cgi?id=174985 . Obviously, that's not a reasonable version for inclusion, but we wanted to discuss whether there was support for removing the dependency before doing too much more down this path.
