Compiling native extensions with Visual Studio 2012?

There have been various threads for MSVC 2010[1][2], but the most
recent thing I found for MSVC 2012 was [3]… from 6 months ago.

Basically I want to be able to compile bcrypt—and yes I should be
using Keccak—x64 binaries on Windows x64.

There are other packages also which I will benefit from, namely I
won't need to use the unofficial setup files and will finally be able
to use virtualenv.

So anyway, can I get an update on the status of MSVC 2010 and MSVC
2012 compatibility?
