Speaking of "new release", is there any possibility that, in a near (or may 
be *very* near) future we might see the following 6 lines on top of all 
*.cxx files (right after the copyright issues, and before the #include) ?

#ifdef USE_PCH
#  ifdef _MSC_VER
#    include "vtkPrecompiledHeaders.h"
#    pragma hdrstop
#  endif

It would be up to the user to provide a vtkPrecompiledHeaders.h file, and 
maybe an additional -I directive to find it in a specific place.  As I said 
before, I already wrote a Perl script that build a vtkPrecompiledHeaders.h 
file made of #include directives corresponding to the most included headers.
