[New-bugs-announce] [issue13210] Support Visual Studio 2010

New submission from Sébastien Sablé <sable at users.sourceforge.net>:

Python for Windows is currently compiled with Visual Studio 2008.
It is not possible to use Visual Studio 2010.

It would be great to be able to compile Python with Visual Studio 2010:

* some people may only have access to this compiler which is more recent

* when embedding Python in an application compiled with Visual Studio 2010, you mix 2 C Runtime Libraries (msvcr90.dll and msvcr100.dll) which will generally result in a crash

This is the parent issue. I have various patches to achieve that and I will try to open one issue by patch. I may also run a builtbot using that compiler.
