We might also want to declare what versions of MSVC (if any)
GTK+/Pango/GLib is at least in theory supposed to be compileable
with. (Whether MSVC can be said to be "supported" is another issue;
building with any MSVC version certainly requires some amount of
manual editing of the makefile.msc files which are indeed included in
GLib and GTK+ tarballs, but as far as I know pretty out of date.)

Here is one datapoint:

Visual C++ 6.0 doesn't support C99 variadic macros.

that doesn't tell me anything ;)
what i really need to know to make any sense of this is:
- how old is VC++6.0
- what version of VC++ has proper C99 support and when
  did it come out
- is VC++6.0 something wide-spread that needs to be supported?
  (if yes, why and for how long?)
