If I am not totally wrong you would simply "make Experimental" and
cmake would build and submit the tests. No need to configure or touch
anything extra besides running CMake once.

Right, there was something like that. I just don't get why you would
ever type "make" if you don't intend to build everything? That was
probably just a precaution.

Maybe we could agree upon allowing this type of convenient dashboard
submissions on Windows by default.
(EIGEN_LEAVE_TEST_IN_ALL_TARGET==true for win32 systems).

p.s. I attached a new patch which also works with nmake. Benoit, by
the way, our scripts do properly propagate the SSE flags for nmake.
