As one of the people who has had the joy of maintaining this in the
past, I wanted to drop it as you may remember but that was rejected on
the basis that someone somewhere might want to use their own VC++ build
over our precompiled versions for some reason.

Now that there is a project on pgFoundry allowing builds of the entire
server using VC++, perhaps we should rethink that decision?
