In v1, if I got a compilation error and needed to look at preprocessed
output, I'd just copy the compiler command line, edit a few options,
and blast that into my shell-command in emacs.
In v2, MSVC compilations use response files for everything, including
command-line options... and the response files are deleted, even when
compilation fails. That makes it impossible to easily preprocess
anything. I have a feeling that this arrangement will make many other
build tasks needlessly difficult. Solutions?
