   Probably wishful thinking, unfortunately: one of the things I've seen
memtioned over and over is that they had to re-write a lot of code that
was patent-encumbered, and I can't seem them doing that same work for,
you know, and old codebase. :7)
   Too bad, though, as I agree that having old stuff running would be
good. (For example, I wish I could run a BSD or Linux on my PowerBook
1400, but I can't so I'm going to find someone to give it to.)
