Gah, I hate SVN.

The next question is, should defining the macros to turn on calling
convention support cause an error on platforms where they're not
supported (which would imply XML markup for those tests and/or #ifdef
_MSC_VER in the tests themselves) or should it be benign (implying
#ifdef _MSC_VER in the library files)?

Your opinion?
