In a half hour last night, I was able to cross compile python for windows, on linux, using

Just get source to tag v2.7.1 python using hg,  then apply David's cmake patch.

Build a simple CMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE for your linux mingw toolset, and it built just fine.

CMake, Linux, Mingw, cross-compiling, and money are my answer to any problems in this topic.
