Super Brian, let me know if I can help.
I already did the necessary changes locally.

Martin, what I mean by "forward compatibility" is simply that the source code compiles and works with more recent versions of the compiler.  The assumption in "errnomodule.c" that e.g. WSAEAGAIN and EAGAIN are defined to the same value prevent that.  Just this little fix would fix almost everything.

I'm sure that a lot of people hacking on python compile it locally without expecting it to work out of the box with downloaded extension modules.  

FYI, Eve Online has been running with VS2010 compiled python 2.7 since the middle of last year :)
