I don't use VisualStudio2003 on Windows to compile NumPy (I use mingw).  
Tim Hochberg once used a microsoft compiler to compile a previous 
version of NumPy and some things had to be fixed to make it work.  I'm 
not sure if some in-compatibilities have crept in since then or not.  
But, I'd sure like to resolve it if they have.

So, please post what problems you are having.  You may be the first 
person to try a microsoft compiler with Python 2.5
