I do plan to merge the changes prior to 'breaking changes' 1.61 deadline. Hopefully, I'll have a few more fixes
in before. In particular, I would like to fix OSX El Capitan testing, and also fix some of long-standing mingw
inconveniences - where you cannot really cross-compiler to mingw from Linux without complicated configuration.
That would take some more time though.

I can just cherry-pick these 4 changes right away, so that you can merge super-project and make sure the CI works
fine prior to any dates?
