Python 3.3 on Windows 2000
It seems that by moving to VS 2010, we have killed Windows 2000 support,
for the same reason VS 2012 would kill XP support: Windows 2000
apparently won't recognize the .exe files as executables anymore.
I haven't actually tested this: can somebody please confirm?

A year ago, Brian put a statement into PEP 11 that 3.3 would support
Windows 2000 still, but with a warning. Under my recent PEP change,
Windows 2000 does not need to be supported anymore since 13.07.2010,
when Microsoft's extended support expired.

So I propose to just remove the claim from the PEP that 3.3 would
still be supported, and not go through any notification period.

Objections?

As a consequence, we could then change some of the deferred-loading
stuff for "new" (i.e. XP+) API into proper linking.

Regards,
Martin

I meant "that 3.3 would support Windows 2000".
