May be. The problem is that developers have a particular platform
with a system compiler, and they want to process code that is written
in and for that environment.
So the only two options for a windows developer are a) to install a second
compiler that is more standard compliant or b) to change the processing tool
to understand the MSVC-specific constructs. Right ?

And if, in particular, they want to 'look' at the code from the system
compiler's perspective, they don't have a choice but to pursue option
