Yes, I really do. Users have protested a lot when we
switched from VC6 to VS.NET2003, because they had to buy new
compilers. We cannot reasonably force another compiler
switch on them next year. However, this is off-topic for
this bug report, please discuss it on python-dev.

As for 64-bit windows support: I happily build 64-bit
Windows binaries all the time with VS.NET2003, see There are no AMD64 binaries released,
but extending the technology to support, say, the AMD64 SDK
compiler would be possible. Patches to the actual code are
greatfully accepted.
