that's exactly the issue.  any solution for dealing with MS
bait-and-switch tactics must not affect other systems.

i certainly won't change my two-line makefiles, even less the
dynamically compile-link-run of luatcc just because the 90% of users
are held hostages of an hostile entity.

said that, i applaud any efforts to make it developing on such
platform more approachable and freer (MinGW and Qt come to mind).
