No, not yet.

I don't have a detailed step by step plan as this is fitting into
little gaps between other projects, but roughly I am thinking...

1. eliminate need for pyRXP
2. switch branches so new code becomes trunk
3. see if we need to do any modernizing of setup.py, manifests etc -
we might have old code we no longer need to support older Pythons -
and generally get the build process as clean as possible on Unix-like
4. prepare an alpha release which will include easy_installable
packages for Windows too and updated binaries.

Otherwise we might just spend time fighting with each compiler more than once.

Hopefully customer phone calls and other interruptions should drop off
soon and get us more time...
