	Another alternative would be to use the Microsoft Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 
that's available from http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/. I 
don't know too much about it but it looks like a stripped down version of 
the .NET compiler. Which, of course, implies that you'd also need to 
recompile Python with .NET so as to avoid library conflicts. As far as I 
know, there are no python distributions that use this compiler.
