Re: Windows dev-* environment

This coming weekend in Boston Summit I was planning to put in the last
work needed to get GTK+ WiX installer sources into shape and push them
upstream into svn.  The idea being to start releasing official
MSM/MSI installer files in future releases of GTK+.

I'm not familiar with the mingw/msys installer stuff at all.  Would this
be at all useful towards that end?
