easy_install ZODB3 looked fairly good during installation until  the end:

This seems to say things will work, just not as fast as they could.  But 
I'm a little puzzled why things would work at all, since I don't have a 
build environment on the machine (well, there is a compiler that's part 
of the MS SDK, but I'm not really sure how capable or operational it 
is--it did seem to compile some sample C code in the kit).

Is there a pure python fallback for the C code?  I thought ZODB had some 
C-level magic.
