I'm attaching a patch that includes a disclaimer about some extensions not being able to compile and mentioning some of Martin's specifics.

I also reorganized the instructions to more directly reflect the current state. This puts the common instructions front and center and makes it more clear which instructions are directed at users of old python and MingGW versions. We might want to take those instructions out altogether given that the versions mentioned are pretty old (circa 2005).
