Thank you for progress!

I agree.

I'm not sure which is better way now. (with or without modern PSDK)
From cleaness of code, I think with modern PSDK is better.
show subversion already seems to require modern PSDK to build it, if 
python uses modern PSDK and winsock2, workaround for socklen_t is not
needed anymore. clean. (this workaround itself is quite easy though)
Of cause, Amaury wants to go without modern PSDK, there is no strong
reason I will disturb it.

Interesting. Current release25-maint branch has same issue, but
python2.5.2 doesn't have this issue. "import con" fails with following
message. Something changed from latest release?

>>> import con
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: DLL load failed: 指定されたモジュールが見つかりません。

# It says "specified module cannot be found" in Japanese. Maybe is this
win32 error message via FormatMessage()?
