I'm not proposing to drop support for VS2003 but simply drop the
maintenance of the VS2003 project files.

There are three ways to compile Blender in Windows: scons, cmake and
project files, the most common being scons and cmake. I and a few others
like to use the project files because it's an immediate way to compile
and debug blender. The project files used to be available for VS2003
only, so I upgraded them to VS2008.
But if you use scons or cmake, they will still compile fine if you have

Requiring C90 or C99 compatibility is another question.
