LIbcurl 7.19.3. header incorrectly excludes Windows 2000 as a VS2008 target

I've noticed that the libcurl Windows header file config-win32.h
incorrectly excludes Windows 2000 as a Visual Studio 2008 build target.
VS2008 does actually produce EXEs that run on Windows 2000 and later:
Unless there's another reason Windows 2000 has been excluded, the easy
fix is of course to modify the following block in config-win32.h as below:
As of 7.19.3:
# if (_WIN32_WINNT < 0x0501) || (WINVER < 0x0501)
# error VS2008 does not support Windows build targets prior to WinXP
# if (_WIN32_WINNT < 0x0500) || (WINVER < 0x0500)
# error VS2008 does not support Windows build targets prior to Win2000
Having made this change, libcurl is running fine under Win2000 with
binaries built by VS2008.
