IMO both gcc-2.95 and vc6 should be moved right were they belong in to
"Unsupported" group. These compilers really hold any further development of
existent libraries. As for Borland: for last year and a half I essentially
stopped porting anything for this compiler (in majority of the cases it's
just internal compiler assert I couldn't overcome) and just ifdef everything
out. It becoming more and more inconvenient, so I am all for deprecating it
and making it unsupported next release.
