This is no longer true as of the latest version of guppy...

Are you on the guppy list? Someone posted a patch to it (which may have
been you?) which has made it into the latest release. I haven't tried to
get it working myself yet, but John Machin (who maintains xlrd) has with
the Express compiler. I was just checking I had the right version and
what version I should use if I want to try with Python 2.5.
I also wanted to know what versions I should be using for python core
development should I be foolhardy enough to try any of that on
Windows... (he says, staring down the barrel of slow httplib downloads
on Windows :'( )
Will let you know what I find...
