[Python-Dev] MS VC compiler versions

Preparing for the distutils patch to allow building extensions
using the .NET SDK compilers, I am compiling a list of version
numbers and MS compiler logo outputs in order to use these to
identify the correct compiler to use for the extensions.

These are the compilers I have found so far:

* MS VC6 (German version; optimizing VC6 compiler):

Optimierender Microsoft (R) 32-Bit C/C++-Compiler, Version 12.00.8804, fuer x86
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corp 1984-1998. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.

* MS .NET SDK 1.1 Compiler (German version; non-optimizing VC7.1 compiler):

Microsoft (R) 32-Bit C/C++-Standardcompiler Version 13.10.3077 für 80x86
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1984-2002. Alle Rechte vorbehalten.

* MS VC7.1 (aka .NET 2003, US version; optimizing VC7.1 compiler)

Microsoft (R) 32-bit C/C++ Optimizing Compiler Version 13.10.3077 for 80x86
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1984-2002. All rights reserved.

[It looks as if optimizing vs. non-optimizing is not something that
you can detect by looking at the version number.]

Could you please provide me with more version numbers and logo
printouts ?
