Windows doesn't support `inplace` packaging in `python_binary`s #2161
This was added in 0f1c0d8 (a commit from 4 years ago) when IIRC Buck actually didn't support symlinks on Windows. As far as I can tell, we do now. Setting up Buck on Windows requires an "Enable Symlinks" step, and there are many other rules which do work on Windows that use symlinks (unless they use some strategy I'm not familiar with).
It seems like we should be able to support inplace binaries on Windows machines.
