WordPress should already "support" ISAPI_Rewrite if it's configured
correctly, the same way pretty permalinks are available via 404
handler even if mod_rewrite is disabled. Use of the `/index.php`
prefix isn't enforced, just suggested if mod_rewrite isn't detected.

I doubt very much that ISAPI_Rewrite auto-configuration will ever get
in the core, but it should be workable via plugin -- maybe by hooking
into the `update_option_rewrite_rules` action.
