I wish that were the case...

The standard Windows Python 2.4 distro is compiled with VS.NET. The
Subversion Win32 binaries us MSVC, because that's what Apache uses in
its Win32 binary distros, and our binaries have to be compatible with
standard Apache installations.

Therefore we can't ship Python 2.4 bindings, because VS.NET and MSVC use
different (i.e. incompatible) runtime libraries.

There's a chance that httpd-2.2/apr-2.0 distros will be compiled with
VS.NET (2005?), at which point we can move to that versin for our
distros and of course ship with bindings for Python-2.4+. I'm not sure
what happens to Perl bindings in this case though. Yuck.
