Reducing the workload is a good thing, and so is sharing of build
processes across many systems; I'm not proposing to give that up.

At the moment, I'm really asking about Windows only; I'll ask about
adding things back into Setup.dist when I can show what advantages
that has. That does not mean that those things would be removed from
setup.py - that is smart enough to build only things that haven't
already been build.
