Has there been any progress on being able to build extensions with MSVC8 
(aka Visual Studio 2005)?

Since the "free" compiler from Microsoft is now VC8, I *assume* this will 
be the new method.....

2.5 itself rebuilds using PCbuild8, as do tkinter (but using Tcl 8.4.14 and 
Tk 8.4.14) however  none of the distutils-generated extensions will build.
