Totally. FWIW, the old, minimal snapshot of cygwin in msys
is probably easier to support than the modern cygwin. (See
how to build it, if you're interested.)

Yes, it would be an amazing amount of leverage, test-wise.
Having msys working would make a whole new level of
dogfooding possible (e.g. building windows mozilla/firefox
on msys on wine).
