Well, again this is an issue that the only people qualified to comment
on are those that have actually experience with Windows, MSVC and the
JPEG libraries, and it is likely that pretty much the only person
qualified to comment on it is the one posting the questions in the
first place.  So nobody else chimes in.  It basically becomes largely
a one-man show of one person who keeps a record of his doubts and
struggles in public.

Actually, at the current point of time, I see this much more with Luc
than with any Windows developer.  He is working on a lot of things
that nobody else seemingly has touched for quite a while.  It is does
no harm asking for second opinions and documenting what you are doing,
but expecting continuous feedback for something where others are at
least equally out of depth is a recipe for misery, and stumbling
through foreign code is misery, anyway.
