A question.... Do you know if OpenSSL's applink.c will be included in
the Windows builds? If so, and I hope it is, great!
If not, I'd like to encourage its inclusion. Doing so will permit
Python to be used with OpenSSL 0.9.8x on Windows platforms without a
user trying to find somebody with the right compiler to rebuild a Python
for him/her. This is needed for M2Crypto, or any other OpenSSL wrapper
for that matter. A lot more can be said here, but in the interest of
applink.c is perhaps two dozen links and some error codes, and is benign
for those not calling these APIs. applink.c may be found in
<openssl_source_dir>/ms and the one line include stmt that would be
added to <py-src>/Modules/python.c is:
And the OpenSSL FAQ: http://www.openssl.org/support/faq.html#PROG2
