I think we keep those for reference, somebody may need to keep using an
older version. 

The win32/mac-dlls are reasonable in that the version issue is split by
python version rather than toolkit. I hope I haven't broken the various
extensions across Python versions although that's becoming harder as
they change the core memory allocation etc etc.

If we do this correctly we need to do a cube with sides

        OS x Python x RL

very hard and not yet done by the Python community as a whole.

Luckily I can build all of the extensions for win32 on one machine with
4 pythons, but that gets harder and harder etc.
