I disagree, because it didn't "sound easy" ;-) 
That's why I thought I'd ask before trying it.

If things are too flakey, I'm content to ignore them. What I want is to 
document what parts work correctly.  I have a specific project (Zapplets) 
that will need a must-run-on-both coding standard, and it would obviously 
make things more feasible if I can come up with a procedure for checking.

In all probability, I don't need anything obscure. The most annoying thing 
is the GUI environment, but I have a plan to solve that already (I posted 
about this late last year, so I won't repeat).

Thanks for the help!
