Couldn't the asm things be wrapped in macros? How do other multi 
platform projects deal with this?

I agree that MS isn't really run by mother Theresa, but Visual Studio 
beats the hell out of any other ide I've worked with. And yes, I tried 
the marvels of programming with emacs/gcc and I didn't like it. gdb or 
ddd are beaten by the VS debugger hands down, imho. Most incompatible 
(C99?) examples I've seen VS fail with on this list are irrelevant 
cosmetics (apart from lack of inttypes.h), as far as I could tell. imho 
again ;-)

Best regards,
