Ok. Just to be clear, do you need MSVC7.1 support, or do you need
win32.mak/nmake support? I realize they both work here, but if we
changed something else that needed MSVC8 but maintained the win32.mak
file, would that be enough?
Inoue-san, I'd be interested in knowing exactly what it is that is the
problem with MSVC8, if it's easy enough to outline?

Great. Let me know if you need any assistance.
