I am the author of that wiki tip. It needs to be updated for Vim 7.3.
Extra files are no longer a separate download, everything is included
in one archive.
You just download Vim sources for PC from
and you have everything to compile gvim.exe and vim.exe on Windows.
You can also use ftp://ftp.vim.org/pub/vim/unix/vim-7.3.tar.bz2
Also, installer from http://sourceforge.net/projects/cream/files/
(gVim one-click installer for Windows) has Vim compiled against Python
2.6 according to latest release note.
