Xpra: Ticket #1574: package python3 client on win32

Problem is that MSYS2 ships python 3.6 now, the version of cx_freeze that we use (the only one that works for python2) is 4.3.4... but that one does not build with python 3.5 or 3.6. Ouch. The latest cx_freeze version 5 does produce a package, but not a usable one...

Hi Antoine, MSYS2 also ships Python 2.7 (actually 3 versions, 2 native and one msys2/cygwin-y).

We already use the python 2.7 from MSYS2, this ticket is about moving to python3 in time for the 3.0 release. Or at least having a usable python3 version on MS Windows.

Some of the brokenness may be explained by the packaging? (see ticket:1528#comment:10)

The python3 version works at least as well as the python2 version and has the advantage of supporting transparency (just not with the opengl backend: #1682).
