Hi all --

I've just created a new code snapshot; this fixes a rather embarassing
bug, and also includes Thomas' latest version of the Windows installer

Windows folks -- please try this snapshot to build PyXML and/or NumPy
under Windows!  The bug affects any module distribution using
"old-style" extension descriptions, ie. the big ugly
list-of-dicts-of-tuples instead of Extension instances, and only under

And of course, give bdist_wininst a good exercise.  This will become
Distutils 0.9.2 if I don't hear any loud squawks.

The URL for snapshots is back to python.org:
