So you're not sure about the default either.

Why? We need a message loop. For several reasons:
- clean shutdown of the application
- debugging window/dialog in the future.

So why remove something instead of fixing it?

I'll check that.

I don't understand your arguments here. Since neither me nor you don't
know what the default of /Zp is, a pragma will make this absolutely
clear, no matter what the default is. And it will stay clear even if the
default changes.
