48 warnings and 0 errors?  Sounds perfect!  ;-)  regex.c was replaced in
2.2 with PCRE because of all those warnings.

Well, you don't gain anything if you have MSVC and don't mind using it. 
I just found it annoying to have to boot up a Windows system, import
latest CVS, fight with MSVC, manually operate MSVC, and finally copy
files.  For SWISH-E 2.3 I setup a cron job and shell script running the
build process on Linux: grab CVS, build executables/DLLs, package with
NSIS, scp to public download area.
