If you go this route, note that it SHOULD be possible to add additional package description manifests, describing other
packaged mingw ports [*], to the overall configuration, so that
mingw-get can be used to install them, as well.  However, this has not
been well-tested: we're basically in the mode of using mingw-get solely
to install "our" offerings.

I wonder, since mingw-get is a cmdline app, if you can invoke it as part
of a p2 installation: e.g. some "MinGW Compiler Install" 'component'
that is selected from within Eclipse, which itself just contains
mingw-get with a suitable configuration xml file...and then invokes
mingw-get to do the "real work"?

[*] For instance, the various sdl-, gtk-, glib- packages you currently
have included as part of the wascana d/l.  Also, mingw-get should
probably be flexible enough to install tdm's gcc, or mingw64's, instead
of's, should you prefer: but again, this hasn't been tested.
