We do need both StdLib and PSDK include paths. Are there any important
user visible headers in this difference? A part of the difference may be
due to changed internals of the PSDK due to addition of the new 64-bit
platform, and other part may be because 2003SP1 SDK has Stdlib and if I
remember it correctly, older ATL and MFC inside. I wonder if they are
separated or not.

Anyways, your point regarding PSDK tested in these specific
configuration makes sense.
