We are not there yet. Obviously, if we need to switch to MSVC2015 for
5.2 and not 5.3 and FB is not fixed by then, then, yes, without FB.
Now that I look at the planning, that's indeed a two-month timeframe

We are not talking of the same period. I was saying that if FB
intends, in the future on an ongoing basis, to be compatible with the
latest MSVC release within one year, then that will probably be
acceptable to us. I WILL ASK THEM WHAT THEIR INTENTIONS ARE. Until we
have their opinion, WE HAVE NO BASE TO DISCUSS ON.
