I'll answer my own question here. According to PCbuild/readme.txt:
This script will use the env.bat script to detect one of Visual Studio 2015, 2013, 2012, or 2010, any of which may be used to build Python, though only Visual Studio 2015 is officially supported.
Not supporting 2010 should be contingent on the availability of just the 2015 compiler -- as is possible for the 2010 compiler -- without several gigabytes of extra fluff. This is still in the future.
I'll admit I'm puzzled by the wisdom of using unsupported compilers on buildbots.
Until the expected future arrives, I think we should keep the 2010 buildbot.
