The build would be nice given the added features in interactivity in matplotlib now.  Would it be difficult to make a Windows XP build as well?  My current build seems to work--but others might also want one with the latest features.

[Edit setup.cfg to suppress the above messages]

And here is the patch to make it work:

I don't have time to add the proper #ifdef to the cpp file at this
moment.  I can't remember to proper check off the top of my head.
I'll commit the fix to the typo.

Did someone want the build?  If so, e-mail me and I'll post it somewhere.
