For Wireshark 1.6:

Support the following ?

!ELSEIF "$(MSVC_VARIANT)" == "MSVC2005"   || \
          "$(MSVC_VARIANT)" == "MSVC2005EE" || \
          "$(MSVC_VARIANT)" == "DOTNET20"   || \
Do we even need to support these extra old compilers?  Since Microsoft
has free downloads of new ones, it's more likely that people can easily
upgrade.
What would be the benefit of dropping VS2005?

The official (Microsoft Windows) build is done with VS2008 anyway. But if I have to use VS2005 for development, it can be helpful to compile Wireshark with the same version as the third party static libraries I need.
