There is yet another consideration which might kill this entire

The beta VC++ 2005 Express includes everything one would want,
nmake, cl, lib, link et al.  It does not have msvcr70.lib in it's
lib/ tree.  It does have msvcrt.lib.  In SDK\v2.0\Bin one also
finds msvcr80.dll.

Which means, it appears, that msvcr70.dll never 'arrived' and has
been orphaned.

Perhaps ActiveState took a better route with Perl than Python.
