The WRITE_RESTRICTED macro defined in structmember.h (value 4) conflicts
with the WRITE_RESTRICTED macro defined in winnt.h (value 8) in the
newer Win32 Platform SDK (such as the one included in Visual Studio 2008).

It generates a warning and could potentially be dangerous as the two
values are different.

Sorry, I just saw that this was fixed on head :(

Thanks for the report. I prefer several false alarms over one bug
slipping throught! :)

You are right with your concern. The two values *are* different. I've
changed the name to PY_WRITE_RESTRICTED. The other names should also be
prefixed with PY_ to avoid future name clashes.

By the way you might be interested in the head. I've created a new
PCbuild9 for VS 2008 Express to Professional Edition with support for
AMD x64 and PGO.
