True, it's amazing how close you (as a developer) can get Windows to
look like Unix.
But it places a big burden on ordinary people just wanting to build
the software, with the standard mingw download.
So there are three kinds of pain to be minimized:
1 original developer
2 anybody wishing to patch and modify
3 users just wanting to build
Generally, we expect (1) to take some extra pain so that (3) is
happier. After all, we _do_ want software to be used ;)
