My preferred scenario would be to replace the Windows build system by
this first, then refine it, then get rid of Autoconf.
The ideal timeline would be to have a ready patch to commit early in a
development cycle, then get rid of the Windows build system by the end
of it. Naturally, this would need buy-in from Windows developers.
I don't foresee replacing the Autoconf build system by this immediately.
Right now, however, the patch isn't moving at all, and I don't see it
going into PG10, so I'm fine with returning with feedback.
