System compiler on Windows?  I've never heard defining MSVC like this ;)

In principle yes.  But it is curious how the NumPy crew are still not 
being able to offer 64-bit binaries for Windows.  Could not they use the 
'system C compiler'?  Could not they use the GCC 4.x for Win?  My 
impression is that this compiler issue on Win is more hairy than you are 

Not that I'm a big fan of Windows platforms, but we have to accept the 
fact that its user base is simply huge.
