It's not unreasonable. However, before we do that, we at least need to
figure out how to indicate in the reports that the MSVC 6.0 results
are in fact produced by compiling against something else than the
main trunk. This kind of mark-up is not currently supported and would
require a bit of coding that I'm afraid we don't have resources for at
the moment.
