	This file simply contains a function for determining whether a dependency
	exists on the Windows platform, given a possible environmental variable,
	delimited search paths, and a main and/or sub-directory paths for more
	elaborate pattern matching.

-- find_dependency_dir_windows(env, main_search_path, main_dir_path)
--   Attempt to resolve a dependency (true or false) folder based on either an
--   environmental variable, start search path, or both. If both are present,
--   the environmental variable will be preferred. If neither are present, this
--   function returns false.
--   Arguments:
--     env                The name of the environmental variable to treat as a path
--     main_search_paths  Paths to look for the main directory in
--     main_dir_path      The a path that must be contained between main_search_path and sub_dir_path
--     sub_dir_path       The path of the directories that should exist at the searched path
