Following the python-dev consensus, I have now added a warning to the 2.7 installer that this will be the last release supporting Windows 2000.

I still think that we should not bump the SDK version above 500 for 2.7. Changing the SDK level does *not just* enable new API functions and constants, it may also change the layout of structures, causing applications to break on earlier systems (see the desaster with SystemParametersInfo, #1601). Bumping the version for 3.2 is fine.
