Obviously I'm interested, but don't misunderstand: most months, I
don't start up a compiler, whether MinGW, one of the other
MSys-focused compilers, or any other compiler. I spend a lot more time
with files for hobby projects open but ignored than I do actually
coding, much less compiling, so don't be doing anything too difficult
on my account.
Still, it's an obviously useful thing for anyone that uses multiple
computers that they don't want to install onto for whatever reason, so
if it's fairly easy (I would certainly HOPE that it could be confined
to mount and MSys), then it's probably worth at least some thought.
