Difference (from prior major revision) (no other diffs)

Changed: 1c1
A "response file" or "command file" is a file containing instructions for a linker, and is typically used to get around line-length limitations on Windows OSes. Right now, response file support is provided for specific toolsets, but that requires code duplication. It would be best to find a way to avoid that. We can't just build it into the Windows toolset because some tools (e.g. Metrowerks, GCC) don't provide response file support.
