Glib itself will not have a specific dependency on a specific runtime,
it is linked to a specific version at compile time.  If it is currently
working with the current build with vs2005, you have been lucky so far,
pass a file handle from glib using 7.0 runtime to something built with
2005, and you will see instant segfault when you try to use that handle.
That is just the most obvious issue, there are several more subtle ones
as well.
