But John's initial assessment of this problem is correct - this is an 8 on the Richter scale in terms of the impending response from
the 'great unwashed' - MS IDE users.
They (including me!) 'just want it to work' - and a massive collection of library files is the least worst option.
Static linking also avoid the files bloat and separate dll issue and so will remain popular with some.
