Right now if you have any moderately complex Python based application (or extension set) the only way to easily debug it on windows is by building Python yourself, which is a horrible solution since it means you may end up with a subtly different version to what your crash dump is against.
While including the PDB in the MSI distribution would require a patch (and might not be the best solution since 99% of people won't need it), copying the PDB to some place does not, so I'm not sure why this hasn't been done years ago.
Even if it's not in a super easy-to-find place (ie: not on the download page), placing the PDB somewhere will greatly help developers who need to debug Python internals in visual studio.
