Sure, there are good arguments for both approaches. I was under the
impression that Boaz was saying that the current way didn't work at
all, in which case of course it needs to be changed. But otherwise
it's just a winegcc implementation detail, and I see no compelling
reason for changing it now, especially since winegcc is still going to
need quite a bit of work.
