As Tim Roberts says on the python-win32 list:

> Actually, on closer examination, it may be a bit difficult to sell this.  The Microsoft compilers do not define this symbol at all.  The SDK defines SSIZE_T (as a long).  Nothing defines ssize_t.

So yeah, the conclusion is that we shouldn't define such symbols incase someone else does too.  So conceptually I'm +1 on that patch (I'm yet to try it and probably will not get a chance for a week or 2)
