Note btw, that referring to the major year numbers of MSVC might be an 
obsolete way of thinking. MSVC 2017 started with only C++11 support but gained 
up to almost full C++17 in patches.  MSCV 2019 is new is so far mostly the 
same as MSVC 2017 ended up as, but it seems likely to also improve greatly in 
point releases.
