Hum... VS2010 changes may not be the best idea yet. My understanding
that when the beta ships the C++0x features will almost certainly be
different from the set in the CTP release, which was very preliminary.
Not to mention changes between beta and release.

With Borland/Godegear we held off config changes until the product
actually shipped. And that was a good thing as they ended up pulling
features at the last minute because of reliability concerns.
