What effect does this static linking of the VC runtime have on libraries that extension modules link at dynamically ?

E.g. say I have an extension which links against an ODBC driver DLL using a different VC runtime than the one used to build Python.

In the past, the has never been an issue, so adding a requirement to rebuild external libraries is pretty much a no-go for Python extension writing. You often have the case where you cannot rebuild the external libraries you want to link against.
