D'oh! It does help to use one's eyeballs. Anyways, all you Windows
people, please try out the new snapshot with the PIL setup script.
You'll have to manually rename ImConfig.h.win to ImConfig.h before
running the setup script.

Here's the deal: if you are one of the brave ones to adopt Distutils
before it's part of Python 1.6 (ie. before 1.6 is released), then I'll
give you really super-duper support. Just ask Paul Dubois or Andrew
Kuchling. ;-) If you put it off, then you'll have to read the manual
that I'll eventually write, just like everyone else.
Of course, there may still be incompatible changes in the setup script
between now and then. (I can guarantee there will be incompatible
changes in the command-line UI and the extension API, but that doesn't
worry me at this early stage.)
