[Python-Dev] PEP 0404 and VS 2010

Another alternative I'd prefer to an ABI version bump: backporting the "C
runtime independence" aspects of the stable ABI to Python 2.7.

There are only a relatively small number of APIs that lead to the
requirement for consistent C runtimes, so allowing those to be excluded at
compile time would make it possible to ensure extensions can be built
safely under VS2010 with the newer C runtime.

Cheers,
Nick.
