[LLVMdev] x86 in win32 folder

It's not clear it offers any real benefits.  The project files already 
exist.  To use this, I would have to throw them away and create new XML 
files by hand.  I would have to maintain them by hand also, whereas the 
project files are maintainable from within Visual Studio, i.e. via an 
integrated GUI interface.

And to comment on supporting other targets:  No reason it can't be done, 
other than Windows doesn't run on them, but be aware that they have 
never been compiled with VC++ and there may be issues with the code that 
need resolving before it successfully compiles with VC++.
