No evidence as such (as in: things to fail, systems that are broken,
etc.) and no suggestions on how to improve things.
I should clarify that I received friendlier mails some time ago (from
the same person), but after a short discussion it converged to a "simply
don't do it, XYZ says it doesn't work" for me. No alternatives, no ways
to improve things.

As a result, I decided to drop Python for now, as stated in my previous
mail. On the positive side, the Windows build has become smaller ;).
