The point was mainly to see if mingw could produce usable binaries.
Msi or not should not matter, normally (but we never know, this is
windows after all) - hopefully we will be able to produce MSI for the
release. Producing msi is a bit of a pain because of a stupid check
against development version which I don't know how to remove (if
distutils detects that the version is a dev version, it refuses to
build msi).
