it's under:

but I've teamed up with Mark H. to update the stuff
a bit, test it with his CE port, and produce a set of
patches.  I'm working on this in this very moment.

btw, as for the "missing methods in the string type"
issue, my suggestion is to merge the source code into
a unified string module, which is compiled twice (or
three times, the day we find that we need a 32-bit
string type).  don't waste any time cutting and
pasting until we've sorted that one out...
