OK, when I have time I will merge current mingwex to trunk. Then I will
check in new files to branch.
I think that is what you mean. This will not happen until I do some
more reading about merging branches.
Also the current crap on mingw list about long double tempts me to give

Actually there are quite of few *printf's around. The difficult part
with all of them is thread safety and sync of standard streams
Getting ld support for printf is about 133 on my TODO list. Its not
that important to me. The only time I would use it is to debug math
functions, but its actually better to use hex representaion of the words
in a long double.
So if anyone thinks it is important, do it.
