@carlkl right, but it's not really a seamless experience. I think my question is: What needs to still be done in order that a user with a fresh Python install in Windows (and no compiler installed) can do "pip install an_extension_that_needs_compiling" and it _just works_?

Is someone with a better understanding of the issues able to comment on this?
