Paul Moore got some Cygwin developers persuaded to implement support for
msvcr90 [1]. The coded was added a few days ago [2]. This means that
users are still able to use MinGW to compile extensions when we switch
to VS 2008 as default compiler on Windows.

I'm not sure how many people are interested in the topic but some may be
glad to hear that MinGW is still supported.
