Well, sure. Same goes for a lot of things. But
since mfc42.dll is a Visual C++ runtime file that
has very liberal redistribution terms and is in fact
bundled with many apps, we can get away without
it for a long time. And it's not currently a showstopper
as far as I can tell; I'm more interested in the bugs that
keep e.g. Photoshop from running flawlessly.
So one of these days it might become a priority.
Until then, it's merely important but not urgent.
