The thing is that I (for example) can't use library if it is not portable.
Particulary is should work on MSVC 6.5. I would need to wait till I get my
hands onto 7.1 (~1-1.5 year at least). If exist reasonable solution that
works now I prefer to start using it. Later I can switch to improved
version, based particulaly on 1 year of exipirience.
