How many downloads ?

As we have had more than 100 000 downloads since Studio has been 
released so far, I guess that if it's oly about a few tens, the we can 
drop it, and let those who are interested in having such a release to 
cut it by themselves, as we have all the instructions needed to get it 
done. Of course, if they do, and provide the patches, we can apply them.

I understand your concern, Pierre-Arnaud.

Btw, why don't we have Studio working for my Sinclair ZX-81 ? ;)
