VC versions and release year don't match in regards to numbers (2002
is 7.0, 2003 is 7.1, 2005 is 8.0, 2008 is 9.0). Things get even more
complicated if you take into account special VC versions released with
some platform SDKs and the DDKs.

One way to avoid problems with libc runtimes on windows is to link
them statically. I did that on one of my projects and it can greatly
simplify deployment. It slightly increases DLL sizes, but that's still
reasonnable (iirc lua51.dll grew from 160k to 250k or so).
