No. You removed VC6 support, which was absolutely vital for me, without
ever asking whether that was viable. Since my development was tightly
integrated, I wasn't able to switch one of projects separately (at least
in the timeframe available).

Yes, but not the query tool nor any of its helper classes. The base
classes however are reused by several other projects, including pgImport.
