A few more:
- If a user explicitly specifies a setup script,
  it should be honored.
- Please use set.difference instead of a raw loop.
- Make sure that this works with a cygwin built b2
  (That's what the if ! [] in NT section
  that you deleted is supposed to be handling.
  I say "supposed to", because although the batch
  script will run without errors, the environment
  changes will be discarded.)
