The problem is, chris, that I have no way of telling what you will find 'off-topic'
and what you won't. 

One of my gut feels is that you find the whole idea of combining the two 
projects together in any way 'off-topic'. In which case I will be blocked because there 
is no way in hell I can do so without in some way taking the m-word project in account.
Whether it be hacking setup.exe to download and install various mingw subprojects,
or tinkering with cygwin.

As for my pleas to take it private, all I am doing is trying to prevent another 
flamewar.  People shouldn't have to listen to bickering and arguing. 

Personally, I think that gunter had the best option - if you don't like what I say,
just - personally - direct me to /dev/null. Problem solved. If people think that I'm
not 'on topic' I'll get ignored.

And my guess is that you sure as hell aren't going to accept any patches that do what 
you - as I can see - find exceedingly distasteful, so what's the point in having the
up-front aggravation?
