Visual Studio Precompiled Headers

I've no idea why this information is not easily findable on microsoft.com: http://www.cygnus-software.com/papers/precompiledheaders.html

Worked perfectly, with the only caveat that I had some C files (in a mainly C++ project) which are fairly standalone (and 3rd party) so didn't want to add stdafx.h to them -- selecting the .c files in the solution, right clicking and (for all configs again) switching off precompiled headers for these files gave me a clean build at 10% of the time.

The double level pch appeals to some degree for when we have a stable code base and just the plugins/leaf nodes are changing -- then again, that's probably time for a library / real plugin design. Right now compiles are fast enough to not bother I reckon.
