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.
