As mentioned, you have updates (MSYS2 maintainers are very quick at
following upstream releases) and a 64 bit environment (something that
MSYS/MinGW doesn't provide.)

Now speaking from the user or prospective contributor, including a MSYS2
bash script that installs the requirements would lower the threshold for
those who wants to track the development sources. Do you think it is a
good idea?
