It's good that the zero-sized array problem is now solved. As long as
Robert wants to support MSVC 6.5 I want to make sure that my changes
do not break anything that worked before. Since the regression tests
still run on RC_1_34_0 I can't see what other things might be broken.
I would appreciate if you inform me in case that see anything that is
broken for MSVC due to my changes.
