Sorry, I couldn't understand the second point.  Why would you have to patch
the Windows build process?

Well, it's not really my place to ask that this patch is prioritised above
others, since as I said if I'm asking for its inclusion it is in order to
benefit other Python users who may easily hit the same problem.  As far as
I'm concerned personally, I have no problem at all applying the patch

Anyway, I'm intrigued about this "review 5 other patches" procedure you
suggest.  What exactly would be involved in such a review?  Please note that
I hadn't touched CPython code before I wrote my patch and I haven't been
following CPython development closely.
