Ah great, that will ease our work.

Can it be built using VC9 and VC6 without too much troubles? We have
to use two different builds as the VC6 and VC9 runtimes are not
compatible. To avoid random crashes or other side effects, we build
each dependency natively using VC6 or VC9 (and sometimes VC8 as
convenience for the other developers). See for a list of the the other
libs we have been worked on.
