Sufficient for whom? Not for the typical Windows user. It's sufficient for
a typical developer, but if they want a build tree they can build Python
themself from CVS.

If developers built their own Python from CVS, that would certainly be less
effort for me <wink>. I'll note that some small number of people have said
they could be more help on Windows if we had a makefile for a different
Windows compiler (and I guess they must mean "not Cygwin", else it's already
there, thanks to Jason Tishler).
