[New-bugs-announce] [issue44236] Define SOABI, LIBRARY, LDLIBRARY and LIBPL on Windows

New submission from Steve Dower <steve.dower at python.org>:

Python on Windows currently has no values in sysconfig to locate the lib files for building. Though these are very predictable (for now), it would be nice to have them in the same place as for other platforms.

I propose defining the following config vars in sysconfig:

LIBPL=Path(sys.prefix) / "libs"
SOABI=<SO but without '.' and '.pyd'>

Are there better shared names for these? Or others that should be added?
