setup.py on unix/linux and converting to windows

P: n/a
AIM
Hi all,

I have a general question and some advice is needed.

Over time, I am running into python modules with setups that are just
made for linux/unix.

I have python installed on windows. To get these modules into windows,
should I do the following?

(1) Install cygwin.

(2) compile/setup the python modules in the cygwin enviroment.

(3) Copy the new (installed) files to my python on windows environment
(specifically and most likely the site-packages directory.

What do you think about this?

In most cases will this work?

In what cases will this not work? Sometimes threading will not work?

Thank you very much.
