Hum, this is important.
I had tested the same PySide egg, built for "python 2.7 VS 2010" and could
install the egg in a "stackless VS 2010" as well. This made me believe
I could use the same extension for both interpreter

But I forgot that in a combined approach the .DLL names must be different.
If there is no simple way out, then I must retract this idea.
That changes a lot, very important that you noticed that.
I would have loved such a hybrid thing, but if you don't see a chance,
then I'm sadly retracting. ?

thanks a lot - Chris
