As long as you have only 1 copy of foo.exe or bar.dll on your system,
it indeed doesn't matter (except for making it easier for you to tell
which program is of what kind).  But once you have an MSYS and a MinGW
build of the same file, you cannot have them both in the same
directory.  Likewise, if foo.exe is a MinGW program and depends on a
MinGW bar.dll, but instead finds an MSYS bar.dll, you are in trouble.
