setup.ini is generated automatically.  There is no way to just add
something.  If you are going to be renaming the mingw directory to
mingw-runtime then I am not sure how setup.exe will deal with that.

If you are going to be creating a new directory then that means
there will be a mingw directory sitting around until we somehow
modify setup to deal with the situation of obsoleting a package.
