New submission from Zachary Ware:

Here's the (enormous) patch backporting 3.5's project files to 2.7.  It also takes care of adjusting the old project files to their new home in PC/VS9.0, and makes a couple of small adjustments in distutils.command.build_ext, FixTk, regrtest, and the Tcl/Tk tests to keep the test suite running properly.  I've run a couple of builds on the custom buildbots, and at this point there are no failures that I can see any reason to blame this patch for.

I would greatly appreciate some review, or at least 'review by testing' to make sure this doesn't completely break anybody's workflow.

Terry, I'm particularly interested in your feedback since I'm pretty sure you generally build from the VS GUI, which I usually avoid doing.  PCbuild\pcbuild.sln *will not* work with the VS 2008 GUI, but it should work with any other VS, 2010 or newer.  If you'd prefer to continue using the 2008 GUI, PC\VS9.0\pcbuild.sln should continue to work.  When using the new project files, though, this should also take care of the headache of making Tcl/Tk play the game; you shouldn't have to do anything extra to be able to use Tkinter.

Steve, I did not make any changes to Tools\msi, but I'd be happy to if it makes your job any easier.

Looking forward to your feedback,
