The example_nt directory was old enough to vote. Frank Stajano
pointed out some of the problems he had following the instructions,
and I stumbled into the others: MSVC has changed in several
respects, Python has changed the directories into which it builds
its own Windows outputs, and we grew the unusual scheme of
appending "_d" to the names of debug-mode output files.
This should all work with VC6 + CVS Python now. Some other Windows
geek please confirm! And the less you know, the better <0.5 wink>.
Explanations and examples for versions of MSVC before 6, and
versions of Python before 2.0b1, have been removed, because
they're too different and so confuse life. This last step I OK'ed
with Guido first (indeed, 'twas his idea!).
