Eventually, I might migrate it to MinGW: the GNU compiler toolset for
native win32 (not Cygwin).

That is very hard to tell... I have some half-decent change history
going back as far as I could investigate it in a few days
if I get the authorization to do so. I would have to do some minor
cleanup in my changelog files on the way.

If I were to work on the win32 port right now, the first thing I would
do would be porting to MinGW to not be bothered by VC++ bugs _in
addition to_ g++ bugs. Then I would merge the changes which occured in
mainline up to the latest experimental release to be sure we are not
banging our heads against old bugs.
