IIRC, we've already decided to do this. I think I've already yanked
I think the last time this was mentioned there was some consternation
from people who wanted a non-cygwin version of gdb for Windows but
no one was willing to actually support the code.
So, since it doesn't actually work, and I'm the maintainer, I think
it makes sense to remove the MSC code. If someone wants to add support
later, then they should probably start from a "clean slate".
