If we were to standardize on one platform, I would say gcc/make/autotools, rather than codeblocks. Most of us have been using that anyway, and it is available for all platforms.
Platform is on what you release (Vista, OSx, Linux), you most likely mean "development tools" (VS2005, VS2008, gcc). However developing on windows and linux is done different even if the tools are the same (and the tools are often outdated on other platforms). I hope that codeblocks will eliminate most of it (it uses gcc, make, etc.) and reduces management overhead.
The compilation problem is because you Windows guys aren't updating your project files as the code changes.
"You shall not commit broken code!", but serious it's an XML file (for those who don't use VS2008) or you could just re-adding all the files and your done (for those who do use vs2008).

As I said before VS2008 is impossible unless you modify the dependecy.
My personal view is that we drop all development tools except those used on the linux platform and only support the linux platform and later we can add multiplatform support. On the other side, if I look at the downloads I see that released version of allacrost 0.2.2 had 1364 ".exe" downloads and only 771 (700+71) downloads of the other types.
