Comment (by pearu):

 I agree that it is a non-standard method but I would prefer
 to fix the issue as it is still a convinient method
 to run setup.py file from Windows.

 If the method works for people then there is not need to
 provide evidence of using the feature by them. So, we don't
 know actual statistics about the feature usage.

 The feature is enabled only when running setup.py script
 without arguments. Without the feature, the setup.py exits
 with an error in such a case. So, it should be safe to
 have the feature - people who don't like it or do not know
 about it, should never run setup.py without arguments anyway.
