Is it permitted to allow python compile with older compilers, even with
some functions missing?

This patch already skips some functions not included with VC6:
socket.ioctl, msvcrt.getwch &co.
Even socket.RCVALL_IPLEVEL is not available on my installation of VS8
(Professional Edition).

Even if the result is only a subset of the official python (as shown
when running the test suite), it may still be useful, when embedded in
legacy applications for example, where installing a new SDK is not
always possible.
