I would use it. I occasionally have to compile for various archs/platforms,
and it would be great if I could do most of this work from a single (Debian)
development box. gnu/win32 is second only to mips (where compiles take
forever) as a platform where I'd like to do my development/building on
something *other* than a native machine. :)
Plus, cross-compilers are just nice to have, and I wish they were better
supported in general...
