What ff I added feature that works on gcc 4.0, but do not have time to port it
on VC 7.1? I've added corresponding test. No egressions appear. IMO what
should be done is that this test should be marked as expected to fail
everywhere where it fails and next release I'll try to port it to VC7.1. Next
to CW and so on.
