Go to


and pick up Python-2.0-Debug.zip.  It contains all the 2.0 _d stuff
(including DLLs and .pyds and .exes -- the .libs alone won't do you much

Then rebuilding from source yourself is a darned good exercise!  At heart,
Python is itself a C application and all the std C modules are "extensions"
to it.  Fiddling the source for Python itself can be very helpful in
figuring out mysteries in your own extensions.
