Somehow I assumed that if anyone would have screwed up, it would be
MS.  Isn't _IT_ usually their fault?

I will spend a while trying to get it to compile on VC6, but it may take
me a while because I have no experience importing new source trees that
weren't built in VC.  I have got access to VS6 Pro & Enterprise, though,
so if I can get it built, we would have a version w/o a nag screen.

Ideally it would be nice to build it without a commericial compiler, using
lcc-win, cygwin gcc, etc.
