I assume Cygwin could be treated as unix-variant in common context.
(Cygwin gcc does not define _WIN32 by default)

In contrast, mingw should be treated as "Win32 development environment".
Mingw provides MSVCRT.DLL-compatible standard headers and w32api.

Of course, I know we have to distinguish msc and mingw in some cases.

In C/C++ sources, we may detect MSVC with _MSC_VER, I suppose.
IMO I don't need to introduce LLVM_ON_WIN32MSVC.

Rather, I think LLVM_ON_**** could be deprecated. It should be enough
with _WIN32.

Sure. And "cosmetic changes (eg. reindentation, 80-col wrap, untabify
&c)" might be split out, please.

Good to hear. :D
