That will be no problem.

I'll definitely provide asymptote. I'm not sure about biber and xindy.
I discussed biber with Philip Kime last June. At that time he didn't
have a 64-bit Cygwin installation, and I wasn't able to get biber to
build myself. But I'll take another look. As for xindy, I'll provide
it if I can build clisp; it may have to be a build without libsigsegv.
(Angelo has already tried to build the latter on x86_64-cygwin, and
there are some problems.)
