i read that as just suggesting that updates should be checked into the
release25-maint tree to get PCBuild8 working out of the box for anyone
who wants to build python from source with vs2005.

Since 2.5 has already shipped built with vs2003 all of the 2.5.x
releases should continue to use that so that third party binary
modules continue to work across 2.5.x versions.
