This cannot be done because of the old msys1/mingw32 builds which require Brian's kicad-winbuilder in order to build all of the dependencies correctly. Build python and wxpython on msys1/mingw32 is a major hassle which has been eliminated with the new msys2/mingw32/64. For the stable release, I would prefer that packagers enable scripting on a case by case basis. We certainly can discuss turning it on by default after the stable release and dumping support for the old msys1/mingw32 platform.
