It isn't.  As far as I can tell, the only point of this patch series
was to prove a point.  If a patch from the series happens to be useful
then that's great, but otherwise it's mostly an act of protest as far
as I can tell.

(From my point of view, this kind of protest is not really a good way
to reward people who have made good contributions to contrib/ in the
past, so I hope it doesn't happen often.)

I'm happy the MSVC build scripts are in git.git.  Thanks for keeping
them maintained well.
