That's sound like good! But I feel that MinGW/gcc may make something different than MSVC/Borland C and others.
I think supporting and maintaining the codes for MinGW/gcc is more easier than for MSVC/Borland C and others.
I'd tried to compile nginx under MinGW and found that I had to change so much codes to fit MinGW's lack of included headers. I think it's easy to fixed on you side.
I think that binaries compiled by MinGW/gcc is pretty similar with MSVC/Borland C and others compiled, because they all are Windows native binaries.
As you see, now many opensource projects are planned to support compiling under MinGW/gcc but not MSVC/Borland C and others.
