Well I was responding directly to the comment "Most of the FFmpeg devs
develop on Linux, so there probably won't be a lot of motivation to
port the code just to use Visual Studio."

I suppose I read that as "we don't want the changes" but maybe I
mis-read, and it simply means "don't expect us to help, but we'll
accept the changes"? In which case, I apologise... the 'vibe' seems
quite anti-VC++ but maybe that is my mistake.
However, _do_ you think that a patch which made it compile for C89
_would_ be accepted, when it adds nothing for Linux users?
