MSVC 2008, which is the (still!) the standard compiler for Python <=
2.7, does not include that header. Newer MSVC versions do.
However, I'm a big fan of stdint.h, so I think it should be used. I'll
bet we can find a header file for MSVC 2008 that could be included
(OK -- not bet much, but worth looking for!)
