I wonder if it is really sensible to include all backend includes. 
People might think they can easily develop backend modules with any 
compiler, which I doubt will be supported thoroughly. Second, somebody 
who has mingw installed won't have a problem to unzip those backend 
sources too; compiling the backend is a good test if everything's 
working as expected.
So I'd suggest to leave backend includes out of the std distribution, or 
at least make a distinctively selectable (non-default) package from it.

Regards,
Andreas
