Historically we didn't add config support until a compiler was
actually released. But if Microsoft is going to be adding features
just via rolling CTP releases, with no formal release for several
years, I'd like to see us add the CTP features based on _MSC_FULL_VER.
Note that the CTP released didn't bump _MSC_VER.

I'll see if I can find out more about their plans, too.
