Oh, I didn't look at V1 when investigating this. But now I know the
rationale behind the current setup.

I like the current init rule. It should only default to nothing (or at
least "native" oder maybe better "edg"). And then set some compiler
options ;-)

I just searched my archives for my intel 7.1 settings for V1 and found:

# STLport does not yet support this.
These were for 7.1 + vc6.0 and STLport-4.5.3 due to the broken
Please don't ask me any details, Thomas Witt figured these out.
And we then change
Warning 1125 is analogous to -Wshadow on gcc and we must remove it due
to some QT-issues. #70: incomplete type is not allowed is normally a
warning which Thomas thought should be an error.

I think that at least some of these should be set when running in
full-featured EDG-Mode. At least -Qoption,cpp,--no_microsoft_bugs ;-))
