I still say a fork is not needed and that we can have make files up and 
running for eVC4 just as we already have for eVC3 and VC 2005.  This 
will not constitute a fork, as the source files will need no 
modification, or at worse case, will simply need a conditional statement 
writing in.  This will not constitute a fork.

If you know that this is not going to work because of specific 
differences in C++ syntax between eVC3 and 4, please give examples.  We 
are working in standard C++ here, so there ought to be no problem: 
although if MS have re-written the standard between eVC3 and eVC4 I see 
that there could be a problem!

God bless,
