[Bf-committers] Windows: Switch to vc2012 status?

If we are to implement these new libs, buildbot will need to be rebuilt on
the slave machine. Would I be able to use the Express version (assuming
there is/will be one)? My primary concern is being able to build with
OpenMP and x64 architectures. As far as I know, 2010+ compiles x64 in
Express, but I'm having trouble finding definitive answers tonight. I
realize there are workarounds, like the one I'm using for 2008 Express, but
native capabilities are far easier to set up and maintain. Also, do we have
a planned date to make the full switch to 2012+? Perhaps 2.70?
