Could msvc9compiler_stripruntimes.diff still be considered for 
inclusion in Python 2.6.3 (high priority?)?
A lot of .pyd's of third-party extensions are getting dependencies on 
MSVCR90 added to the .pyd, which makes them not work if the runtimes 
are not installed into the WinSxS folder and/or when embedding into 
other applications. For example, PIL encountered this problem recently. 
In essence, all Windows Python extensions built using setup.py 
build_ext encounter this problem.
What the patch does is edit the manifest file to remove only the 
dependency on Microsoft.VC90.CRT.
