At the moment, MSVC builds lack Python support, so that's a no go, also
we'd have to redo the entire packaging as that is msys2 based as well.

Python support on MSVC is non-trivial, because there is no such thing as
a default system python.

I have WiX based installers in the pipeline, but you might have noticed
that I haven't really gotten around to finishing anything substantial in
the last months, so that is a bit off still.
