The Phoenix port to msvc is still WIP (work in progress). I might be wrong but i
remember reading that porting LL to vc6 has been tried a couple of times and given
up on. Having said that if LL and phoenix are combined in any fashion the chances
of a successful port to vc6 will definitely increase. Anyways i'm halfway through
porting Phoenix and if their is sufficient interest i will definitely take a shot
at the next Phoenix && LL hybrid if there is one.

Yes i can definitely see this as a problem. I hope it won't come to that , but i'd
rather have two than have none ;-).
