But then it should be possible to build a 32-bit version with VC6 for 
Strawberry, just not for Activestate? Or did I misunderstand your last 
Since I use Strawberry that would be fine with me. I think I even still 
have VC6 around somewhere...

Or else -- given the uncertainty of predictions -- do you have an 
estimation when you get into the gcc/dmake thing?
