Use the compiled plug-in. This page:
says to copy sourcepy.mll to the Maya plug-in directory.
Python extensions for Windows are usually distributed as binaries
because so many people do not have the resources and knowledge to
compile them. I don't see anything in the Maya plugin docs to indicate
that you have to build it from source.
