That's great news, I haven't had a change to try your notes out yet but
hope to get to it this next week. Last I remember I got stuck on a proj
error but had everything up until that.
Note, you will run into an issue with the Python Cmake file as it only
checks for MSVC when looking for a .bat file vs .sh, and it needs to
actually check for WIN32 or for both MSVC and MINGW. I will file a
ticket/fix for that so someone can verify it.
