OK - I will have a go at this tomorrow.

I don't know.

Is this a discussion that should go to the mingw-w64 list do you
think?  It must be a very common feature.

As you know, I'm really hoping it will be possible make a devkit for
Python similar to the Ruby devkits [1].

The ideal would be a devkit that transparently picked up 32 vs 64 bit,
and MSVC runtime according to the Python version.  For example, OSX
compilation automatically picks up the OSX SDK with which the relevant
Python was built.  Do you think something like this is possible?  That
would be a great improvement for people building extensions and wheels
on Windows.
