Yes, and it's only relevant in that if one does create the link library
for MinGW using pexports+dlltool it will work. It's making it work with
the default ActiveState install that causes problems for MinGW since it
will find the MSVC link library first. Hence it might be worth trying to
work around it, but probably not at this time.
