Hi Chris,

Forgive my jumping in again here...

master merged into it, and Peter and/or Chuck tell me they are happy with
the state of it on Windows, then I'll run through the complete testsuite
with the head of that branch on all the Unix platforms I have access to.
If there are significant regressions, then I'll create a 2.2.x maintenance
branch for future 2.2.x releases, and merge pr-msvc-support into master
for eventual inclusion in libtool-2.4.0.  Otherwise, I'll make the next
2.2.x release from master in a few months with pr-msvc-support already

I think it important to merge pr-msvc-support into master one way or
another so that it doesn't get ignored for any longer than it has already.

In any case, I'm hoping to make point releases every few months from now
on for as long as 2.2.x continues to accumulate fixes and ports.
