Probably silly reasons though...

I have a distutils.cfg file and a build system set up that works. I 
don't want to bother setting up a different build system when I already 
have one that works. I can use the Intel compilers at home, but only if 
I have an open VPN connection to work. I think just using a free gcc 
compiler is easier. I don't want to remember switches for two compilers. 
Syntax for inline assembly is different (on Windows), requiring 
preprocessor magic and code duplication. Object files and libraries are 
named differently (on Windows). There are numerous resons, but they all 
boil down to me being lacy.

S.M.
