Estimated difficulty: easy


There are a confusing number of different build configurations on Windows that cause us nothing but pain, influencing build style, directory separators, shell quoting and egg scripts. This number must be reduced. One first step would be to drop Cygwin support, as WSL makes it somewhat obsolete.
