Actually, it's more like 2 versions, not 3.  The binaries compiled by 
MSVC and MinGW are the same program, just with code produced by a 
different compiler; they use the same runtime libraries and GUI 
toolkits.  The Cygwin binary is a totally different beast, running mostly 
Unix branch of the code and using the ported X libraries and toolkits.
