[Python-Dev] Documentation enhancement: "MS free compiler"?

I'm channeling a correspondent, who tells me that Python documentation
(Python 2.5 announcement, and so on) mentions compatibility of sources
with "the MS free compiler"; that's the default toolchain for Windows.

Apparently we're in conflict with Microsoft on that:  some hyperlinks
refer to <URL: http://msdn.microsoft.com/visualc/vctoolkit2003/ >, which
  The Visual C++ Toolkit 2003 has been
  replaced by Visual C++ 2005 Express
The latter is available at no charge, incidentally.

We need to update things, I believe.
