If we want to make this a SoC project, I can help mentor it a bit
unless someone else wants to step up. I was thinking about giving this
another shot myself using Han's mingw rpms he supports for
CrossTesting. I've got quite a bit of experience on the mingw side
from my ReactOS days and have followed the Mozilla/Firefox mingw
progress since the start of time so I think I could help a student get
started. I don't have much spare time to actually work on it so having
a student do with with some monetary motivation would be a good thing.
