Against 2.3, rejected due to dependence on SCons.
Also appears to have been incomplete, needing more work.

Open, from same submitter, only (minor) review by you.
Does this supercede 3754?


Yours, Martin reviewed and closed.
FWIW, the comment about not adding 'minority' platform specific stuff to 
the core (as opposed to 'neutral' changes that make them easier) was 
also applied, a week or two ago, to the BEOS successor.
I added 5026 as superceder.

Are there 'neutral' changes to the core you would like that would make 
maintaining this and other platform-specific patch sets easier?
