I've been using VS 2008 Express just fine here, and did all the
development for my static tuple stuff with Cython 0.11.3. Perhaps they
fixed those bugs?

Perhaps it is because I'm using 2008 w/ python 2.6.

What is the problem you have with 2.6?

Note also that Kerguelen currently builds just bzr for 2.4 + 2.5 using
mingw and for 2.6 using either mingw or VS 2008 (I don't remember the
exact configuration right now.)

I was thinking to switch to 2.6 for the 2.1 series, unless you have a
specific reason why you don't like python 2.6.
