So, I have some concern with the direction we are going with this.

Assuming that we will try to ditch MSVC in favor of mingw on Windows,
will we require people hacking on Windows to use mingw exclusively?
Also, does mingw do platform specific optimization as well as MSVC does?
Whatabout debugging tools?  How will one debug LibreOffice on Windows?
I assume using Visual Studio as a debugging tool is out the window (no
pun intended)?

Telling them to switch to Linux is not an option though.  Not everybody
can make the switch, and some (many?) Windows developers want to stay on
Windows as the primary development platform.
