I'm keeping quite and hoping that someone else will solve the issue :-)

If my understanding is correct, then:

* we need to detect whether the std lib was the one that shipped with vc6, 7
or 7.1 but:
* we can't use _MSC_VER because it gets set to arbitrary values.
* we can't use the Intel compiler version because Intel 8 can sit on top of
vc6 and 7 as well as 7.1
* so we need a method that relies on the std lib alone, except that there
isn't one..

Is that right?
