The first 100% clean (ignoring _ctypes warnings) Windows builbot test
run just finished.  Yippee!  Setup is hellish, although you've already
done the worst of it if you regularly build+test full Python on
Windows from a checkout ("full" == everything we ship on Windows,
including bsddb, ssl, Tcl/Tk and bz2).

The second-worst part was figuring out which parts of various software
docs could be ignored.  I recorded all that remained here:


Reading that should save you several months ;-)

That would be great.  A dupe of WinXP would also be great:  I'm not
going to keep my buildbot slave up all the time, or anywhere near all
the time.
