So far I have compiled against python 2.5 with vs2005.   I do plan to compile 
against 2.6, so I will use vs2008 for that.  Ultimately I would like to have 
all versions built with mingw-w64 but there was a gcc bug causing a crash 
when instantiating QCoreApplication with the version I tried.  This bug may 
have been fixed in the meantime so I will hopefully have it working in the 
near future.

Phil, would you be willing to host the installers?
