unstable in the sense that it changes all the time, yes.
msys, on the other hand, is working off a frozen snapshot
of cygwin from long ago, and never changes.
So it's stable in at least that sense.  I have no idea
how buggy it is.  It works well enough to run configure
scripts on real windows, though.

Oh, really?   Got URLs?  Have you tried any of them on wine?
