No, of course not! Who needs stderr when you can have translucent pulsating 
buttons, really? :-)

But seriously: my intention was to have link() do buth the generation of the 
project file and the actual build, so the errors would come up at that time 
(which seems to be the same time as they would come up on other platforms, 
no?). After the build distutils will take over again to do the install or 
whatever else it wants to do.
