No, just at there is little chance of maintaining the current MSVC 6.0 projects
the way things stand.

The "only right way"(TM)(R) would be to create a perl project manager.
Sure, I hear, let's not make those "poor [Windows|Netware|IDEfan] users"
set up and configure perl, it's "too hard"(SM).

Phoey.  That's the direction I'm heading in; autogenerating a workspace
schema from our existing Makefile.in sources.  Take the top level definitions
from the Makefiles, and spit into a perl script the targets.  Let the IDE
architecture-specific perl module craft it into a project schema and write
out build files.

This could be extended for VC5/6 .dsw/.dsp files, VC7 .msproj files, the
Netware CodeWarrior projects, the Apple's OSX IDE, and so on.

So requests to add more cruft that -someone- [probably not you] must
maintain will be rudely rejected.  Offers to help create such a solution
will be warmly embraced :-)
