C99 designated initializers will be implemented in Visual C++ 2013.

The consequence for Hamlib and fldigi is that it should be much easier to compile these projects with Visual Studio.

Not everyone might be interested by this possiblity, and I understand that, but there is an interest into it due to the great capabilities of this IDE.

Also, using several compilers is a good way to find some types of bugs.
