While I can see the possibility of making the binutils version
dependency go away (by manually creating the PE header), I can't
see how you'd overcome the gcc one: The MS calling convention
support is still going to be needed (not having looked at the patches
themselves yet, I can't see myself accepting the introduction of
stubs to convert between calling conventions).
