I use Philipp's blog entry from ages ago:

You see, I've always worried about using mingw32.

I was under the impression that you really wanted to have all the C bits compiled with the same compiler, and I know that the official Python 2.5 releases aren't compiled with mingw32...

Can someone with definitive knowledge let us know if there can be problems when some C-extensions are compiled with mingw32 and others (including python itself!) are compiled with the appropriate microsoft compiler?

Certainly, running Python 2.4 and Zope 2.10 compiled with mingw32 on Windows as per has not given us any problems after a few months of using it.
