No, cygwin is still required.

I try to periodically test things in Windows.  I probably won't get to 
that today, but the next time I do I will try to remember to test that 
temporary files are deleted.

A unit test would make this much easier.  One could perform a simple 
MapReduce, using a non-file-based InputFormat and OutputFormat, then 
check for non-empty directories under mapred.system.dir.  Would you or 
someone else be interested in contributing such a unit test?
