Thanks for all your efforts Russel, GPars wouldn't have become the very
useful library it is today without your efforts.

You are right though that things have changed. I'll try to find time to see
what still builds with a view to doing a new release (with perhaps much
functionality pruned).

Cheers, Paul.
