Yes, it's very annoying to see VC8 warnings on perfectly legal C
constructs (AFAIK even sprinf is now considered "unsafe", MS wants
everybody to use sprintf_s). But the optimisation capacities of VC8 are
really great. Maybe someone can measure the speedup?

P.S. there's an "_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE" flag that eliminates most of
this kind of warnings. Also, #pragma 's can be used (although this
isn't nice at all).

P.P.S. are there any experiments with compiling CPython with Intel's
