Ah. Good points in all cases. If we place any files on Windows, then we
should try to follow rules like that.

Visual C/C++ 6.0 has been out for years. There is little point in trying to
support older versions than that.

That said: we will support exactly the set of Windows compilers that
*volunteers* help to support. We have a serious lack of Windows developers
here (just one, really, and one at like 1% time). And if they use VC6, then
that's what we get :-) No VC5, no cygwin, no Borland...

Patches are always welcome...

Cheers,
