Dear all,

We're currently considering upgrading the Visual Studio project files
for the Mono runtime to require VS2013 as a minimum, rather than 2012.

This introduces two major features for us - it means C99 compatibility
so we can clean up the runtime to use standard C99 types throughout, and
2013 has a fully-featured gratis "community" edition which would allow
any Windows-based contributor to hack on the Mono runtime without
handing thousands of dollars over to Microsoft for Visual Studio Pro.

How does the rest of the list feel about it? I'm very much pro - I use
VS2013CE to build the new Windows packages of Mono.
