Off-hand, it's only minor issues: e.g. when running Python out of its 
build directory, the DLL must be in the same directory. Now, since
the output directory differs depending on build option, getting the
DLL there might be tricky.

Things I wonder about and couldn't quickly answer from the web:
where exactly is the DLL that we would use?
is there a AMD64 version of it?
Does it come with import libraries usable by VS?
