I did some reading on that recently, but haven't had time to go further. (I
found it while reading up on MSYS/MinGW.) Getting a Linux machine doing a
cross-build is fine, and something I think we could maintain longer term.
The current build scene is rough.

That would probably be the way we'd go; the only reason for doing this
would be to support native o-pi work that lets students do assignments like
(for example) "Life on Mars." We could do it all "in the cloud," but that's
another rewrite/massive project, so a Linux->Windows cross-build is a saner
approach at this time, in my mind.
