Paul, see http://www.bartleby.com/61/54/D0145400.html for a definition
of the word deprecate.  As for the work in -mno-cygwin, I don't think
the current maintainer would mind not having to support it any further. 
Besides it's a Cygwin specific and not a normal UNIX way of doing cross
building.  MinGW is foreign wrt Cygwin and should be treated as any
other foreign host/target.
