Heh. Some drivers will be closely related -- I submit that MinGW would
use makefiles just like Unix, and those would of course be generated by
get-make.py. The .dsp and .vcproj generators should be closely related
too, I expect. And I see no reason to generate both project files and
makefiles; one or the other, but both is overkill.

No, I'd rather have all those scripts somewhere in build/, where they
belong.

I would not. The Windows scripts have to handle things like the location
of httpd sources, the location of apr/apr-util/apr-iconv and neon, and
BDB... in short, a lot of things that configure takes care of on Unix. I
see no read on to put that logic into gen-make.py, because it clearly
doesn't belong there.

Keep things modular. One huge do-it-all script is a pain to maintain.
