Light branch merge

Vtchill will look over the changes and merge it to trunk

PathFinder

  • Will not be ready for 0.3.0, but may be ready for 0.3.1

Python coding standards

  • Removed "This article is currently only a proposal"
  • A stickied thread should be created in the forums, so all developers can review the article

C++ Tutorials

Vtchill will continue to use static linking for now, and work on his fife-tutorials project.

Win32 SDK

We need more than one person to be able to create SDKs. We will create a guide for creating them. It (probably) is not necessary to copy the includes for each compiler. This will save around 90MB of disk space, and remove 13500 files.
