But which version? 2002, 2003, 2005, and on and on...I'd rather not
have to go add a new option to the generator every time a new IDE comes
out. And then when the generator is tweaked or changed, who is going to
install 4 versions of the IDE and test the 4 versions of dsp/vcproj
files it can generate? It's getting ridiculous because MS doesn't have
a decent project file format.

I guess we could add a sub-option for '-t vcproj' that is the name of
the template to use or something and then just make a template for each
version of the IDE and leave the rest of the generator alone. The
vcproj files seem to be only slightly changed across IDE versions, so
templates may be able to account for the differences in IDE versions
without having to change generator code. That is certainly true for
2002/2003, but I'm not sure about 2005 -- it is not completely happy
with our 2002 vcproj files, but I haven't looked deeply into why.
