Not this. Rushing ahead blindly would not be deliberate.

This. Waiting (interminably) on MinGW changes would not be very speedy.

I know most of these the libtool/mingw-cross changes under complaint
were mine. However, I did at least try to ensure that they were a strict
improvement in regards to performance on existing tests.  If those tests
didn't catch some problems, well...yeah, better test coverage is (mostly
[*]) good.


[*] except that it takes over three hours to run the testsuite natively
on cygwin, on my 3GHz machine...and under Vista, I have to *attend*
those three hours, thanks to this:

Ditto on native mingw...
