I suppose that you, as release manager, get to to decide of this "if".
Calling "showstopper" something that does not prevent getting working
binaries is a bit liberal as far as I'm concerned.

Apparently, no concrete proposal was made.

Assuming the concrete proposal is:

        Whenever no explicit version of msvc is provided,
        run compiler, extract version from the output, and
        use that.

and I'm asked to implement that in code, it would require
access to all versions of msvc for which that behaviour
is desired, plus a couple of days.
