There's some minor tweaking of distutils required.  See the instructions 
here:

    http://www.vrplumber.com/programming/mstoolkit/

it's not the most convenient situation in the world, but it's doable for 
people who are comfortable with a bit of hacking around.

As of yet I've had precisely no-one confirm (or deny, or even mention 
trying and failing, for that matter) that they too have been able to use 
the process to compile a module, but it seems to work fine with the 
modules I've tested.

Have fun,
Mike
