The mailing list archive on

To my knowledge people only complained about it, but no one started 
implementing anything.

Certainly no one from the VirtualBox development team... we don't change

Visual Studio 2003 for 32bit builds and Visual Studio 2005 for 64bit 
builds. This should be somewhat obvious from the build instructions ;)
