Yes, that's valid point and what I was concerned earlier. that said
improving something for the native build on MSVC would be nice. though
I still prefer to improve this with autotools as far as possible or
just put minimal Makefile as other projects do.

I should pointed out more specifically, but this patch could be
separate to 1) cmake for MSVC 2) direct.h emulation at least.

Aside from how the review is going on, we have to work out on some
updates on autotools too since it's our build system and at least it
won't be shipped into the archive otherwise.

Anyway I can't promise anything so far when it will be merged because
it's the sort of big patch, I'll do my best.
