I see that you're basically reading the include and lib
dirs from the vc_env which essentially reads the vcvars
batch files, so that's no different than what we're
already doing.

It may be useful to add an official helper to the module to
run this extraction outside the compiler class, e.g.

def get_vc_var(var):
    return _get_vc_env(plat_spec).get(var)

Hmm, to hook into those, we'd have to find every single use of those
methods and override them. Doesn't sound like a good way to do this,
if you want a few options extra with every single compile call.

I guess we'll then just continue to override the .initialize() call.
