If you are doing a build using the UNIX-like way of checking everything out and building it, then you will already have a shell installed via mingw or cygwin on Windows.  If you are doing a build via Visual Studio or similar, then you will not be using this script.  Rewriting it in Python just adds a needless dependency.
