msys2 already has an Emacs package, so it would be better to point this
out to people. People who would be willing to use mays2 to add packages
would probably be happier using the msys Emacs package in the first place.

On the other hand, including msys2 in an Emacs installer might be a good
way to introduce people to msys2. Depends on which is more popular/well
