The only reason I didn't choose VS2010 is that it's only beta at this moment. 
When it's out of beta, I agree we should use this instead.

However, having a test buildbot system with the 2010 beta is probably a good 
idea, to get rid of compiler problems from it.

I hope we can have just two packages - 32 and 64 bit - that will install on 
all Windows systems. There might be differences between the systems that have 
to be handled in the packages, but I don't want to have two packages per 
Windows version. That would be *really* bad.
