In Chromium land, we've so far been able to use the same compiler we use to
build Chrome to build clang. Currently that's MSVS2015 update 2, and it
took quite a while to update from 2013 to 2015 due bugs in 2015 and
whatnot. So I agree that it's useful to support older MSVS versions for
some time. For this reason, requiring update 3 would be inconvenient for
us, but 2015u2 would be no problem by now. It would've been a problem if
2015 had been required shortly after it was released.
