This may make life hard on Chromium as right now we don't support building
with VS2010.  We are working on adding support (I think
http://crbug.com/25628 may be the closest bug).  I'm not sure what time
frame that will happen in.

I don't think we have any plans to drop VS2005 support.  If WebKit drops
support it may force us to do so as well.

In both cases above we're not so much impacted by vcproj/sln changes (since
we use GYP to construct our vcproj and sln files) as we are by code changes,
e.g. code that requires VS2010 to build correctly.
