If you know about any outstanding Distutils bugs, please tell me *now*. Put 'em in the SourceForge bug database if you're wondering why I haven't fixed them yet -- they might have gotten lost, I might not know about 'em, etc. If you're not sure, put it in SourceForge.
Mike Fletcher found a another bug: Building extensions on windows (at least with MSVC) in debug mode link with the wrong python import library. This leads to crashes because the extension loads the wrong python dll at runtime.
Will report this on sourceforge, although I doubt Greg will be able to fix this...
Distutils code freeze: Greg, I have some time next week to work on this. Do you give me permission to check it in if I find a solution?
