One good way of helping out is to provide an dynamic loading function
that third party modules could access the basic python functions such as
PyArgParseTuple, PyString_AsString etc regardless of which python the
user is running. This would be similar to the COM approach. You can load
all the function pointers into a struct and then call them. 

Third party modules would link against this DLL independent of which
python is being used.
