I'm not sure what's best here, but I'm leaning towards just "mingw".

If I understand the different versions of MinGW correctly (and it's
unlikely that I do...), there is both mingw32 ( and
mingw-w64 (, which are different things: the former
is the old name for "normal" MinGW (according to Wikipedia, anyway),
while the latter is a fork of that. So, using "mingw32" might be
misleading, since we define just the one feature for both of these

Perhaps someone with a better understanding of these projects could
chime in. Otherwise, I'm partial to just "mingw", since we don't
