Overall this puts Visual Studio way ahead as an IDE in which to develop NaCl code. Given that Visual Studio is considered to be a standard implementation of C++ this leads to a surprising situation - Microsoft's IDE being the best for creating Google Chrome NaCL code.
Does this increase the chance that Microsoft might support NaCl? No way.
