I think this issue urgently needs a scope defined. What *exactly* is it that you want to achieve? If it's merely being able to compile Python with VS 2010, many of the proposed changes are unnecessary.
If you propose that the patch should be used to replace VS 2008 with VS 2010, I suggest that instead of developing it as a patch, you create a hg clone that you maintain on your own.
If you propose that Python 3.3 be built and released with VS 2010, then we need to re-evaluate this question again. Wrt. VS 2012, my hope is that this will be available for 3.3 already. If that's not going to happen, I'd be open to switch to 2010 for 3.3 only (and to 2012 for 3.4).
