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.
