 # Functions to deal with visual studio manifests. Manifest are a mechanism to
 # enforce strong DLL versioning on windows, and has nothing to do with
 # distutils MANIFEST. manifests are XML files with version info, and used by
-# the OS loader; they are necessary when linking against a DLL no in the system
-# path; in particular, python 2.6 is built against the MS runtime 9 (the one
-# from VS 2008), which is not available on most windows systems; python 2.6
-# installer does install it in the Win SxS (Side by side) directory, but this
-# requires the manifest too. This is a big mess, thanks MS for a wonderful
-# system.
