Does mingw[32] have any particular advantages over mingw-w64, I wonder?

Not that I know. mingw-w64's CRT is more complete (it includes LFS,
which mingw32 does not, for instance), includes more up-to-date
compilers and handles threading better.

So if I understand it correctly, it would be best to entirely drop mingw32, gcc-mingw32, mingw32-runtime and the other members of that family from Debian and concentrate on mingw-w64 (which then, as a bonus, could be split into packages targeting i686-w64-mingw32 and x86_64-w64-mingw32). Right?
