I was looking at mingw's versions, too. I wouldn't mind just pulling
them over into cygwin. That would continue a trend that I've been
following of moving as much stuff away from newlib as possible. We
would need non-inline versions, for backwards compatibility, though.
I'm going to be out of town for most of next week, so it looks like a
1.5.18 release won't be until Saturday at the earliest.
