well on one hand it sounds reasonable to do this. But on the otherhand
it would harden maintainance of both windows 32-bit targets IMHO. I
think it would be best to add an additional header, which describes
the differences between those two target runtimes and let the main
configuration together. IMHO it confuses more then it would help. But
well Danny, what is your opinion about this?
