   Thank you for the links.

   As for the name - I prefer the ones I suggested so far as they are
more 'neutral' (less spirited/snarky/offensive/...).

   And the links do not answer my original link-incompatibility question:

>> * Are we sure we want the <msvc-security-warnings> feature (or
>> <crt-security-theater> as you called it) to be marked as link-incompatible?
>> Doesn't this just enable or disable compiler/linker warnings and does not
>> affect the built executable/object code/library?

   I know that the _SCL_SECURE setting (a.k.a. <msvc-checked-iterators>
or <stl-security-theater> the the original post) may cause link

   My question was related to the _SCL_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS &
_CRT_SECURE_NO_DEPRECATE settins (a.k.a. <msvc-security-warnings> or
<crt-security-theater> in the original post) which I do not believe
affects link incompatibility in any way but whose feature was declared
as link-incompatible in the original post.

   Best regards,
