I do not believe we have seen any reports of failure to build krb5-1.10 
with visual studio versions earlier than 2010.  The build instructions 
specify VS2010 because that is what I was using when I wrote the build 
instructions, and I wanted to be specific enough that the procedure should 
always work.

The 1.9.5 release is the last planned release in the 1.9 series; I do not 
expect this bug to change that.
