I hope you're not suggesting we drop Mingw/MSys as a build platform, 
even if you personally don't want to build with it. I would have found 
it much harder to do parallel restore for Windows (which works quite 
differently from Unix, and so had to be specifically developed) if I had 
been forced to use the MS tool set with which I don't ever otherwise work.

I don't think we should deprecate 8.2 on Windows unless we really can't 
backport this fix reasonably.

cheers
