MSVC 2017 retains ABI compatibility with MSVC 2015, yet supports (as always with a newer compiler version) more features and compiles faster. Because it retains ABI compatibility with existing Python versions, I think it makes sense for distutils to prefer it (this could be fixed in setuptools, but distutils generally takes care of compiler detection).
