I will have MSVC somewhere next week (when I get at the office). I'll 
try to build it with MSVC then. If you're interested in the extensions 
below, contact me offline.

I can live with that for the moment. The only parts I'm using for the 
moment is twisted.names and twisted.mail. And as JP is heavily working 
on the mail part as I understood, I'm working with the CVS version for 
the moment.
But as soon as I get more free time, I would like to investigate the 
rest also. I'll see how far I can get without cbanana and/or _c_urlarg.
