Just to clarify it is possible (but there is no way to make it private)

"Side-by-Side Installations of Visual Studio

Visual Studio supports installation of Visual Studio 6.0, Visual Studio .NET
2002, 2003, and Visual Studio 2005 on the same computer, which allows you to
evaluate the latest version of Visual Studio and upgrade gradually."

I believe what your trying to say is that you used the command line tools
remotely and not the actual Visual Studio IDE.

So you could conceptually have a user config file stipulate the use of the
Visual C++ 6.5 compiler and linker.

So in effect your both correct :p.

The Site config could only configure Visual C++ 2005 (or what ever it is
called) and the user config could be setup to also use Visual C++ 6.5. So a
user could potentially use either.
