What I wonder is: should there not be one group per target operating system?
While I can see the sense of bundling W32 and W64 together (but still
wonder whether users won't prefer them separate), let's assume there was a
legal way to build a cross compiler for OS X (AFAIK, there currently is
none, unless you limit yourself to the base Darwin only): would people
really want to install the MinGW stuff when all they care about is OS X or
the opposite?
