Hello,

>From previous posts and documentation it seems python should be able
to import a module that is compiled into a .dll just as well as
a .pyd. I have a pyd that works fine, but after renaming it to dll the
import fails. Running python with -vv flag indicates it doesn't
actually look for the dll (see below). Has dll import been defeatured
in python?

Thanks!
