[SciPy-dev] Digital Mars C++ Compiler

I just downloaded this and tried it on a few files.  It looks dang fast
for the compile step.  That would be very nice for weave, although MSVC
does pretty well on windows (gcc is slower, but still works fine).  No
word on how fast the code runs because I didn't try anything to fancy.

Now if distutils only had support for it...

I'm very ready for a blessed gcc 3.1 release for mingw32.
