Yeah, I had just started to wonder about that when your mail arrived.
It'll need to happen if we want to say that "VC is supported" with a
straight face, but I can easily imagine that it'll require nontrivial

I don't mind though if running the regression tests requires mingw;
that's not an essential step unless you're a developer.
