I just wanted to say, thanks for still caring about the mingw32 port;
although I fortunately didn't have to build software distributions for
win32 lately, if I did, mingw32 would be my first try for the following

- can be used for cross-compilation from unix
- or using the cygwin->mingw32 cross-compiler, via a unix-like full
  development environment on win32 (emacs/vim, shell, toolchain, etc)
- mingw32-built applications allow easier standalone installation, not
  requireing the msvc++ runtime libraries which don't seem to be
  installed by default on some (all?) windows, or are outdated by

I see a number of opensource projects which used to support mingw32 but
which no longer officially do, however.  So cheers for caring.
