Ah. You may well be somewhat out of luck for the moment, then; I've no
idea what status is during the betas. Once Python 3.5 is released, VS
2015 should also be available, or else the official compiler for
CPython 3.5 will probably be changed.

In the meantime, you could possibly ask on python-dev; Steve Dower of
Microsoft hangs out there, and he's the one who's driving the compiler
choice - he may be able to advise as to where to get the prerelease
compiler.
