Well, that certainly sounds like Microsoft.  Fortunately I'm using VS 2008 Professional, so I guess that's not it.  :(  But thanks!

By the way, do you happen to know how tricky it is to get Python 2.7.3 to build with VS 2010?  Or have any tips there?  It doesn't seem to be officially supported, but it sure would be nice to get out of the dark ages of MS compilers and be only one version behind the latest.
