This would be very well, and a Good Thing, although I beg to differ - on 
Windows a different version of the binaries will always  be needed if 
changing minor version since extensions are linked to the Python DLL 
which is called python22.dll, python23.dll, python24.dll and so on.

Moreover, reading the code it appears to me that checking just the minor 
version means that as written it will only work within the 2.x branch. 
Of course there's no telling what will happen in the time coming, so 
this point can be moot, but I would advise for checking the major 
version also.
After all, there's still a sizable amount of old code around still using 
(actually, requiring!) Python 1.5.2...

Anyway, thanks for the great work, it is doing us a lot of good.
