[Python-Dev] Build extensions for windows python 2.4 what are the compiler rules?

I see that, as expected, windows python 2.4 was built with MSVC 7.1 
rather then msvc 6.0.

It seems that I can build extensions with msvc 6.0 that work with the 
python 2.4 windows
binary kit.

Is this safe?

I recall warning a while ago about mixing msvc 6.0 and msvc 7.1 runtime 
DLL's. Is this
an issue with python 2.4?

I'm also surprised that the python 2.4 source kit only mentions MSVC 
6.0 and not the
compiler that you actually built python 2.4 with.
