Chris, how would you and the other MinGW developers feel about moving
mingw and w32api somewhere else?
There has been some talk about splitting apart the various components of
the "src" directory (gdb, binutils, cygwin, etc.) and it might be time
to separate cygwin and mingw/w32api more definitively.
