This is long overdue and now that we have a reasonably compliant MSVC
compiler that works on Windows 2000 up I can't see any excuse for not
dropping support. Things that this work will still work, but if not -
tough. (I am not proposing ripping out all the #ifdefs relating the MSVC 6,
despite the improvement in readability that might result).

Should we have a straw poll of the lurkers - so that diehards can have their
say - and then make a decision?
