"If available, the executable can be run; this will install the package

For few releases in the 2.0.x series, Microsoft Windows binaries were
contributed by Laurent Oget from Predictix.

There is currently no binaries or support for Microsoft Windows (more
for lack of ressources than anything else)."

figure out what's needed to build rpy2 on windows.
