Was the question of mingw32-built extensions ever resolved?  That is, will 
we be able to build extensions for the standard Windows Python using the 
distutils' "mingw32" compiler, as is possible with Python 2.2?

If this hasn't been resolved, and somebody can send me a binary for a 
.NET-built Python, I'll be happy to test.  I have several Pyrex and C 
extensions of varying vintage that I can use for such a test.
