Enhancement proposal for setup.py

since we've now got a Build/ directory containing the various setup.cfg
files for the different platforms, I thought we could enhance setup.py
to simply guess the correct CFG and pull that in directly from Build. We
could also make it recognize a debug build and use a debug CFG.
This comes in handy for me, at least, since this way I put my different
configs into two different files which don't clutter the main dir and I
cannot miss settings anymore.
Obviously this should be extended to override this and use a particular
CFG (esp. when cross-compiling), but I'd say it's a start. Here's the diff:

How's the idea?
