Apologies. I had an out of date mingw runtime. It appears that msvcr80
*is* supported with mingw, but that's the latest.

Whether that counts as an argument for sticking with VS 2005, I don't
know. I doubt it, realistically. But it *may* constitute an argument
for not going to VS 2008 until it's actually released (and mingw have
a chance to ship a runtime with appropriate CRT support).

Feel free to use *your* "I told you so" speech on me :-)
