I agree, we should strive for consistency between the UNIX and
Windows infrastructures and it would be a good thing to eliminate
as much platform-specific code as possible. Obviously we can't get
rid of all of it but whatever we can share we should (an example
of change in this direction is:

Yes, that would definitely be an improvement over what we publish
today. The build log we publish for Windows builds is much less
useful that what we have for UNIX.
