I should mention why I'm concerned:

The first thing that will happen when this utility is available is that
anyone having multiple-cygwin-cross-comple-vendor-tools-issues (remember
the list recently) will try it. If it's suitable for running an isolated
test suite, but not for production side by side use, I can just imagine
the traffic volume.
