How does one get from "ImportError: DLL load failed:..." to a culprit .dll and symbol?

I've been Googling around on a moderately common Windows Python problem:
a mismatch between the symbols a python extension thinks are available
and the contents of the associated DLL. Python users running into this
problem are greeted with:
"ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified procedure could not be found."
That's it: no mention of which dll nor which symbol is causing the
problem. Both these pieces of information are helpful/important in
resolving this class of problem: how does one get Python to dump this
(>python -v -d
doesn't help, BTW)
