USE_MSVCRT makes it simple to add debug print output to the library.  Is this
change really necessary?  We're not allocating any threads, so a single-threaded
app should always be able to use a multi-threaded DLL.

(It's not a huge deal to have to change it back before adding prints, I just
want to understand the issue better.)
