Don't tell me this is again windows doing things totally differently 
than everybody else for the sake of being incompatible :) On windows, 
the major problem I have with ctypes for pyaudiolab is detecting the 
library, because numpy.distutils does not find the dll if the .lib is 
not there (the library I depend on, sndfile, is compiled by mingw by the 
main author).

Of course, I do not pretend there is no problem, I just don't understand it.
