I see that you made up your mind and graduated the branch to `master`
already. Very happy about that, and of course I hope that this was
intentional ;-)

Just so you know what's building on top of this: I do have a PR lined up
that adds an MSVC build to the Azure Pipeline, but I have second
thoughts about it and think that it would probably be better to make
that a full Visual Studio build (the difference being: the MSVC build
requires both Visual Studio's Command Line Prompt *and* Git for Windows'
SDK to be installed, while the Visual Studio build would require only
Visual Studio for the build, and the Git for Windows SDK only for
generating the project files -- and maybe even a Linux agent could
generate those now).

In short: I hope to get the CI to the point of using the Visual Studio
support and testing it, over the next cycle.

Thanks,
Dscho
