I’m confused by this, because there are several other examples of static member variables declared “public:” - e.g.:
	include/MPEG2TransportStreamFromESSource.hh:	static unsigned maxInputESFrameSize;
	include/MPEG2TransportStreamFromESSource.hh	static unsigned maxInputESFrameSize;
	include/RTSPClient.hh:							static unsigned responseBufferSize;
Why do these not also need to be be changed to make Microsoft’s broken compiler happy?

Also, are you aware of the function
	static void increaseMaxSizeTo(unsigned newMaxSize)
which most people call to change the value of “maxSize” (because, in reality, most people want to just increase it)?
