Fair enough.  The USE_MINGW_MSYS conditional is for people who want to
make an Msys aware version of the pex* functions.  I included it because
when I volunteered to work on these function, I thought that it was a
requirement, so I reluctantly added features to deal with Msys.  Then I
was told that it wasn't necessary.  So, rather than nuke my changes, I
added a conditional.  It's likely to have bit-rotted by now.

Again, I request that you all not cc me on this thread any further.
