[zeromq-dev] Request for comments on Windows packing

I'm looking to grab a Windows 10 KN VM and start building new Windows
packages again.  Interested in feedback on what to support and how.  In
looking at 64-bit supported Windows that could limit the platforms to MSVC
2012/v110, MSVC 2013/v120, and MSVC 2015/v140.  I don't see much point for
32-bit or Windows XP anymore outside of paid support.

There does not appear to be any alternatives for the Boost library naming

The CMake configuration has taken many patches that have severely hindered
multi-compiler package creation.  The options I see are maintaining
separate environments for end-user single-build CMake and another for
multiple-build CMake, alternatively I have been playing with WiX and can
look at creating packaging with that, with cleaner x64 support than the
Nullsoft/NSIS various forks.
