Well, Gerhard has periodically worked on getting Mingw to work. I've had a quick go myself, but don't know the ins and outs enough. I would like Mingw to work, as I don't have access to MSVC at home, and don't have time to work on Python at work :(

Since this is definitely MSVC-specific, I think it should be in an #ifdef block. Other Windows implementations (Mingw, etc) would not get the delay loading.
