Don't worry, that is not what I'm proposing. I'm talking about
removing support for generating Visual Studio projects using autotools
and removing any hand-rolled VS projects that we still have in the
source. Because MSYS uses autotools to generate makefiles like any
other Unix, there is very little maintenance burden there.
