[Python-Dev] Status of C compilers for Python on Windows

I don't think this is exactly on the same axis. Being able Python to
build with a free compiler won't change this issue. Scientific Python
won't be only the free compiler version, Visual Studio would remain
the main citizen. It may fragment a little bit more the environment
with people needing to pay attention to which compiler/Python version
the Python extension/module is compatible with.
And jettisonning Visual Studio for building Python is not an option
because of the amount of applications relying on both (Visual Studio
and Python) in companies.
