I don't have previous experience, but I think this it likely shares the
issues that VS.NET 2005 has with the current code:
1. the project files are for VS.NET 2003. In theory, conversion to
the new format is supported, but I don't know whether this conversion
2. MS broke ISO C conformance in VS.NET 2005 in a way that affects
Python's signal handling. There is a patch on SF which addresses
the issue, but that hasn't been checked in yet.
