Python 2.5 Bindings on Windows

Hi All,
    I have been chasing down problems with the Python 2.5 Subversion
bindings on Windows and I finally found some information to explain
why here:

http://docs.python.org/whatsnew/ports.html

Basically, .dll is no longer an accepted extension for loading shared
libraries that Python modules require. This means that the Windows
Subversion Python 2.5 bindings on subversion.tigris.org do not work
as-is. Simply renaming all of the python/libsvn/_*.dll to
python/libsvn/_*.pyd makes the bindings work. Now, the reason I bring
this up on dev is because I wanted to know if our build process should
handle this for us or if education is enough? (Education being
updating the INSTALL file and/or web materials.) As of now, no one
knows there is a problem other than running into "No module named
_***" which isn't very intuitive.

Take care,

Jeremy
