I guess there is not much about it. Maybe it runs faster than a 32 bits
MSYS on 64 bit OSes, but I have no data. The convenience of having
MinGW-w64 64 bits along with MSYS2 (32 or 64) is a different matter,
because the MSYS2 maintainers certainly will do whatever is in their
power for ensuring a seamless MSYS2/MinGW-w64 experience.
