I can't build official binaries with VS: I don't have VS. Also, there is 
the problem of building the fortran dependencies (BLAS/LAPACK). I don't 
know if it is even possible to build ATLAS on windows x64. Even assuming 
we only use netlib BLAS/LAPACK, I still need a fortran compiler (gfortran).

You need to use the same VS as python: this means VS 2003 for official 
python 2.5 (you can build python yourself with VS 2005 or 2008, though, 
but for distribution, this is not useful).
