The MSVC CRT has more-secure versions of standard functions, and "...the older, less secure version is marked as deprecated..." (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8ef0s5kh%28v=VS.80%29.aspx)

Deprecation warnings from the compiler just recommend that the newer versions be used and don't necessarily indicate a problem.

We should probably disable these warnings where they aren't already disabled.
