This change is mostly a hack to make it possible for us to have a "standard
configuration" windows buildbot.  (i.e. "just type build-webkit --chromium and
run-webkit-tests --chromium like every other port")

There are 3 pieces which you have to install to get this up and working as is
(ActivePython 2.6 for windows, the Python win32 extentions, and scons 1.1.0). 
If we ever get Scons + MSVC working under cygwin, there will only be *one*
piece (scons) which you have to install to build using scons.

I think we should talk about more documentation (on the WebKit wiki) once
someone else besides me has ever tried to build using this build system on
their machines.  I'm happy to write some docs as I bring that first person up
and going (which hopefully will be as simple as type "build-webkit --chromium"
on any platform w/o any additional installs at that point).
