Hi all!

In our working group, we're starting to use python for some machine 
learning tasks.
Performance needs force us to deliver some of our code as optimized C code.

To make a long story short: I was the one to discover howto deploy 
native python extensions on windows.
The online documentation on various sites about that topic is quite old 
and sometimes faulty.

I think the setuptools are a big step forward for professional 
deployment of python applicatoions. Keep up the good work guys!

Maybe I can contribute to the project by giving you a more recent 
documentation on compiling and deploying python code and python C 
extensions on windows using
-setuptools / distutils
