No, not really. There are some docs on mingw and LLVM (see mailing  
list and the wiki) and some posts about cygwin on the mailing list.  
Nothing official for either.

I'm not sure what you mean by heartache. LLVM is used to compile many  
programs (see the Nightly Tester for a list of programs and  
benchmarks that are compiled every night). The best thing you can do  
is try it out and see how it works for you. If you did happen to come  
across a bug, the advantage of LLVM is that they usually get fixed  
very quickly.
