Hmm...  Well, the gcc source is the same for both Cygwin and MinGW,
AFAIK, at least that's what I get out of Danny Smith and Chris Faylor
posts.  So, what works for Cygwin should work for MinGW.  Now,
interoperation between MSVC, Watcom, Borland, etc, and GCC; is it
doable, and if doable, is it worth it?
