Yes.  And we could add VS2010 and VS2012 project files at the same time.
The project files could also stand a bit of an overhaul.  It would be good
to use project references rather than hardcoding .lib paths into the
linker settings.  It would also be useful to have separate project
configurations with and without Ogg.
