But what will be the alternative for those who are using -mno-cygwin?

Will there be a simple (cross compile) replacement, as discussed previously.

I'm really curious (and concerned) about this, because I _am_ using this 
great cygwin toolkit on a daily basis, but I do also create non-cywgin
(native windows) programs. I wouldn't like the idea to have to install 
MinGW, too.

Thanks for your efforts and your hard work.
