Just to set the record straight, I'm a python expert and I use windows for development but my knowledge of writing or compiling C code on any platform is pretty small.

This sounds similiar to the results I got with mingw32. Another thing is that using mingw32 is actually more like unix development than windows development, since it's a unix emulation library. So to get an expert with it you need to find someone who does a lot of cross-compiling from linux to windows, or is just poor and can't afford VC++, which is rare in my (limited) experience. The linux people tend to ignore windows and the windows people tend to use VC++ and ignore linux.
They do have a mailing list though. Here's a link to it (searching its archives for 'python'):
