OK, as a specialized hack to be mingw compatible I can understand
it. It sounded more like a general Winelib compiler that would be used
in all cases, which I don't think is a realistic option. But sure, a
small mingw tool is fine, just name it something like mingw-wrapper to
make it clear it's not a general purpose thing.
