So if we were to remove the winbuild directory altogether, is there
anything we would lose? Anything which wouldn't work as good as the
hand-made ones?

If not, I suggest we do so (or move the dir into "unused"), and put a
note in the README file. And a simple guide (just a few lines) in
README.cmake for generating the project file(s).

Does that sound fair enough to everyone?

Yeah, I would also prefer not having to update more build systems.
