Traditionally, MingW-compiled Python binaries would often be
binary-incompatible with the ones available from python.org, since the
MingW build would use a different version of the MS CRT than the
python.org version. As a consequence, extensions built for the official
binaries would crash in the MingW build, and vice versa.
