And vice versa.

The problem will just shift, not go away. Consider your (external) dependency
is built with MinGW. So building your application with the "platform standard"
C++-ABI is the wrong thing to do, in this case.
I don't think the problem can be resolved, realistically.
P.S.: But also, I think that supporting multiple compilers can hardly be
considered a "solution" to the problem, either. It just splits up the set of
breakages into two distinct sets: those that are broken with MSVC, and those
that are broken with MinGW (three sets, if you count those that are broken
with either compiler). Let the user choose: You want bug A or bug B?
