Well - I'll commit something concrete to trunk and let people debate.

Right.  Very foolish.  Need studio 7+ compatible flavors.  Morons.

No fear; I was going to cover all GUI's not EOL'ed yet, at least.

It makes no sense for the next version major.  But the .mak files will build
under VC6 + SDK, or DDK + SDK + mladen hacks, or whatever.

There's nothing special dsp gives anyone anymore, except the export ability
we will replace.  You will still be able to compile.  Would urge you to look
at mladen's hacks if you want a modern compile plus classic msvcrt.
