   Yeah, an old troll indeed. :-)

   Well, consider the work Gildas has done, it has required no major
code additions and it already works. As for the additional #ifdefs,
there are only 21 of them, which is acceptable, and I plan to drop this
number down to about 10.

   Honestly, are there any real advantages in forking the repository ?

   (prepare yourself for the next episodes of our saga: why use DirectX
since SDL is already done ? why use MSVC since gcc works ?)
