No, it's internal to the programme.  We already have the following code,

mod_export void
cygwin_premain0 (int argc, char **argv, void *myself)
    static struct __cygwin_perfile pf[] =
        {"", O_RDONLY | O_TEXT},
        {NULL, 0}
    cygwin_internal (CW_PERFILE, pf);

to do something of the kind for some files opened by the shell, but it
apparently doesn't cover everything we might need.  That's all I know on
the subject.
