Just so you know, it's completely possible to build the Sword binaries
and the Python SWIG bindings with MinGW on Windows, and have them work
with the standard Python distribution. Python is built in C, so it
isn't so picky about which compiler you use (would be nice if more
libraries were like this...). I've just built the bindings myself with
MinGW and they work fine.
