Would this change anything about how extensions are built?
There is now the "ms compiler for 2.7" would that work? Or only in concert with VS2010 express?
It should have absolutely no impact on building extensions. If it does, that's a bug to be fixed. Regular users of Python on Windows (those who don't build their own) should have no idea that anything has changed at all.
I'd suggest explicitly reaching out to the Stackless folks to get their feedback. As I believe the switched to a newer compiler and VC runtime for Windows a while back, I suspect it will make their lives easier rather than harder, but it's still worth asking for their input.
