I knew about binary compatablilty, it was more a matter of: if Qt is using 
2019, I might as well do the same.  I have many scripts that assume only 
one MSVC version is in play, but most of those can probably be fixed by 
making a junction (symbolic link) so msvc2019_64 and msvc2022_64 point to 
the same files.
