Is there something novel about the VC8 project files that requires their 
inclusion in SVN (as opposed to allowing the IDE to update the project 
files to the new format)? More project files mean we have more to 
maintain, something to be avoided if possible. I think the facts that 
MSVC 8 isn't yet released and isn't yet one of the environments we 
support suggest we ought to hold off on including VC8 files for now.
