I use Scons to build my Python modules (everything is in my blog if someone
wonders) and I use Visual C++ 2005 with the official Python 2.5 binary, and
everything works just fine. For the moment. If I start using some
complicated stuff like FILE*, it won't work anymore, but for "simple"
modules, it works really fine.
