If so then the documentation is wrong because I was reading the
documentation on it just a few weeks ago looking at it to replace what
we're using now. I'm still not inclined to use it as a replacement for
MakeMaker until it's included with Perl, which from what the docs were
saying might happen with 5.10

I doubt that. We have Python bindings already working on Win32. There
are even instructions on it in the Perl5 section of the SWIG
documentation. So I'd say the issues are completely build
system/environment related.
