Hi,

Would it be a good idea to branch off into all kinds of native windows
tools? I know cygwin can be a pain, but it puts all in one place, limiting
version hell.

Yes, this is also my point of view.

But the first goal in this regard is to have a default configuration which is working on all windows machines - when following the Devel Guide.
Leaving newbies with a default configuration not working on their 
machines - and we know that it won't work in a lot of cases - isn't 
really nice ...

I've already spend some annoying time to find out what the problem behind the cygwin python is - but couldn't find a solution for this.
I've switched to native python already some weeks ago and don't have any 
problems with it.
So unless we find out what the problem is, switching to the native 
python version seems to be the right thing.
