It was VS2003 that I used to compile numpy. However, I switched boxes a 
while ago and I haven't got around to trying to compile on the new box, 
I've just been using the released builds. So I'm not much help at the 
moment. Things are clearing up a little bit here, so maybe I can carve 
some time out to get things set up to compile in the next couple days. 
If so I'll let you know what I find.
