If a shared_ptr is really a pointer then MSVC is right when it raises an error on this contruct
(from src/lib/datasrc/tests/
zone.find(Name(""), RRType::A()).code
the result of zone.find() is a shared_ptr and MSVC claims a shared_ptr has no code member...
The fix is to replace by:
zone.find(Name(""), RRType::A())->code
but my question is whether MSVC is a bit picky or is plain right and the code must be fixed?
(I put the proposed change in the attachment so with other words should I remove the #ifdef?)

Hmm, this should be obviously ->. It's even surprising the
current code compiles with any compiler...

Yeah, this actually seems like a bug.

Actually, this should have already solved as part of other ticket.

It was a more fundamental level regression that
hadn't been included in for a while (I guess it's a
regression as a result of introducing loadable modules).

I'm now closing this ticket.
