I don't like mswin and would like to switch to win32 to make it
consistent with win64, but I need the blessing from Hans first.

Long time ago Hans asked me if we could switch to rsync from the MinGW
project rather than the one based on cygwin's dll. (Then we probably
both forgot about this.)

The "setup2" is experimental setup bundling rsync from MinGW, the idea
was to provide testing setup that would replace the old one.

As soon as I get a green light, I could remove "setup", rename
"setup2" to "setup" and only leave the new binaries there. (I can also
remove "setup2" in principle.)
