The problem is that when you will have issues, they will be painful
and hard to debug. For example, you will get a file descriptor from
some part of C code using one CRT, and will try to access it in some
another part using read/write from another CRT, and it will not work
at all. Given that using the SDK for 2008 is easier than the one for
2010 anyway, I don't see any reason not to use the recommended one
when developing against python2.6/2.7.
