Any way we choose, we have to do first steps and try and test, to see
how things really works.
I've got convinced it's a good idea to start with VC++7.1 and see.
If we will really find problems, we will try to switch to VC++8.0 and,
again, test and see.
This way, we'll collect better observations about
capabilities of both versions.
