At least the old solution should be renamed from FLAC.sln to FLAC-vs2005.sln.
Otherwise those who use MSVS 2012/2013 may think that they should use FLAC.sln
instead of the newer FLAC-vs2010.sln.

(the old solution is for MSVS 2005 and 2008, the new solution is for
MSVS 2010 and newer: 2012, 2013, ...)
