Also, will 2014 express edition be able to fully build extensions for
Python, 32 and 64 bit? Will it be able to build Python itself?

I ask because I'm currently discovering how much fun (basically none)
it is to set up the SDK compilers for building extensions, and it
would be fantastic if that pain point could be removed. (It's also
personally relevant to me now, as my python-dev provided MSDN
subscription has run out, so I'm back to only having access to free
tools :-))
