The point is that even the MSVC8 project files are not supported.
They have been included, but they are not actually used for anything.

Not necessarily. Take a look at how I deploy Python 2.6. I use a single
copy of the DLL, but two copies of the manifest (both referring to the
same DLL image). AFAICT, this works fine on XP (but fails on Vista SP1,
which complains that the manifest is ill-formed).

I'm closing this for 2.5 as rejected; it might cause more problems than
it solves, and 2.5.3 will be the last release (i.e. with no release to
fix it if it breaks something badly).

If you can come up with a working patch for 2.6: that would be more
interesting. Would the many manifest files that get generated need to be
shipped as well?
