If we're happy to say that win32 binary packages must always be built
with Microsoft compilers, that's fine, but I got the impression that
some people would like to be able to develop using non-Microsoft tools
(mingw, g++/win32). And a decision that means that those people can't
ever release a binary-compatible package seems odd.
