I can certainly improve this for 3.5 as part of the move to VC14 (which will require changes to distutils anyway). The installer won't touch it.

For earlier Python versions, I'd quite like to see setuptools take over detection from distutils and provide the better error message. I have some other work going on (currently, mostly, still in secret) that may help here, so I may be the one to contribute it to setuptools too if things go well.
