Originally, I was surprised by the use of MSVC as main toolchain for
Windows, then I've planned to allow Apache Daemon to be compiled with MinGW
toolchain [1]. My goal is to compile and cross-compile Apache daemon for
Windows/Linux in 32/64bits with one tool; GCC is a good candidate.
However, I want to allow anybody to compile sources with a wide range of C
compilers, then C source code must follow one of C standards.

I'm agree; this is much more for a 2.0.x version.

[1] Maybe I'm not aware about an issue with GCC for windows targets ?
