This works with vcvars32.bat too.
One more reason why it is a good thing - it will be much easier to
decouple MSVC and PSDK modules and reuse PSDK module with other
toolsets. Basically it will be possible to enable PSDK-based build by
listing required <path>, <include> and <library-path> in the usage
