Hi John,

Thanks for the refactoring, it looks good to me, I applied as r82621.

Yeah, we will probably want to go a long time before we care about
this. Adoption means being compatible with the existing environment,
as painful as it may be.

By the way, I still don't have all my local patches in for testing on
Windows (there are basically 3, one to add count + not to
test/Scripts, one to add my local search headers, and one to hack
around stdint.h), but the current number of test failures is ~60,
which isn't too bad. A lot of the remaining ones are STL iterator
pickyness which should be easy to eliminate if someone sits down to
work through them.

Also, what happened with your patch to add MSVC search paths in a more
principled fashion? In my fuzzy memory I thought it had gone in, but I
didn't actually see it in the source.
