Well, IMO, the format of binary files generated by VC2003 and

Problem arise with the C runtime, not with object file format. In
particular, python uses the C api for file handling, and the standard
C is definitely not ABI compatible within VS versions.

I strongly advise you against using VS 2005 (with the binary python;
if you build python by yourself, then no problem; I don't know if it
is possible to build python with VS 2005). You *will* get crashes in
many cases.

My stupid question: if there is something between VS 2003 and VS 2005
incompatible, what
about MINGW for python2.5(VS 2003)? Is it safe, or just as (un)safe
as VS 2005?
