Haven't looked into the details of the patch yet, will do so. But the first thing I notice - you say this is only for MSVC, right? But the patch will also change the behaviour for the mingw build. Since you say you haven't tested on it, does the documentation imply that it would work on mingw, or is this likely to break that build? Perhaps it should be made conditional on MSVC only, and not on WIN32?


Thinking about the above... It is a good idea to have something like this be
compiled only for MSVC. I guess we have to add an additional preprocessor directive from mkvcbuild
to the solution (what about MSVC_COMPILER?)

We have a directive called WIN32_ONLY_COMPILER that's used for this. It'll pick up MSVC and Borland C++ which normally behave at least almost the same.


I am installing mingw to test the patch there. Chances are it will break
because mingw does __declspec(dllimport) differently than msvc

Thanks.
